Update iproute2 package to 4.19
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


There is always a matching iproute2 package to the Kernel.

Right now we still run iproute2 4.14 but with a 4.19 series Kernel. This should be fixed to also get all the latest features of 4.19.

Remaining question is: Why do we need our own iproute fork and can't use the upstream packages commit for VyOS? Thats the commit we build right now in

I remember seeing some commits which we used for interface statistics which I have not seen e.g. in the upstream Kernel. Its time to check their validity if those struct extensions are really used in VyOS

c-po moved this task from Need Triage to Finished on the VyOS 1.3 Equuleus board.
