Description Steve Muir 1999-10-06 21:25:04 UTC
net-pf-17 must be aliased to af_packet in order for
PF_PACKET sockets to work correctly i.e., for the kernel to
autoload the module.  Since this is a fixed alias, like
net-pf-4 being ipx, this should be added to the modprobe
default configuration.

This appears to have been fixed for a while.
Marking as resolved in the current release.
