Description Jon LeBlanc 2017-05-26 19:08:11 CEST
During upgrade from MGA5.1 to MGA6 with properly running network, aircrack-ng-1.2.0rc1.3.mga6.x86_64.rpm hangs with the following screen message:

[*] Downloading IEEE OUI file...

Waited 5 minutes for activity but had to ^C to break out to command line, ran urpme aircrack-ng and then reran upgrade, which completed with no further problems. Have not installed aircrack-ng after upgrade was completed.

Suspect that hard coded www URL is broken. Suggest that even with correct URL a hard timeout be added to aircrack-ng source or else limit such a download to first use of aircrack-ng in order to prevent this from happening during installs.

Comment 1 Nicolas Lécureuil 2017-05-28 10:36:54 CEST
this is not release blocker but need to be fixed anyway.

the URL is OK, it uses :


if [ ${WGET} ]; then
                ${WGET} ${OUI_DOWNLOAD_URL} -O ${OUI_IEEE} >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
                ${CURL} -L ${OUI_DOWNLOAD_URL} > ${OUI_IEEE} 2>/dev/null

It might be good to add a note about this in the Errata, thus I'm adding the
FOR_ERRATA6 keyword.

Once added to https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_6_Errata please replace

Keywords: (none) => FOR_ERRATA6

This is High priority bug for a good reason.

Making Mageia even better than ever is best direction.
In order to do right thing, this bug should be examined and fixed as soon as possible.

Packagers, please make the status to Assigned when you are working on this.
Feel free to reassign the bug if bad-triaged. Also, if bug is old, please close it.

On October 1st 2020, we will drop priority to normal.

Is this fixed?
Else: for errata 8.
