WARNING:  The ixgbe driver compiles by default with the LRO (Large Receive
Offload) feature enabled.  This option offers the lowest CPU utilization for
receives, but is completely incompatible with *routing/ip forwarding* and
*bridging*.  If enabling ip forwarding or bridging is a requirement, it is
necessary to disable LRO using compile time options as noted in the LRO
section later in this document.  The result of not disabling LRO when combined
with ip forwarding or bridging can be low throughput or even a kernel panic.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux  “Use CAP_NET_ADMIN and alias netdev-bondX instead” Message on Boot


Environment :

  • RHEL 6.2

  • kernel-2.6.32-220.el6

  • Bonding configuration

When load bonding driver in /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf on boot, the following message will be logged.

# cat /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf
alias bond0 bonding

kern: Loading kernel module for a network device with CAP_SYS_MODULE (deprecated).
Use CAP_NET_ADMIN and alias netdev-bond0 instead


dev_load() of kernel-2.6.32-220.el6 is the below.

void dev_load(struct net *net, const char *name)

no_module = !dev;
if (no_module && capable(CAP_NET_ADMIN))
no_module = request_module(“netdev-%s”, name);
if (no_module && capable(CAP_SYS_MODULE)) {
if (!request_module(“%s”, name))
pr_err(“Loading kernel module for a network device “
“with CAP_SYS_MODULE (deprecated). Use CAP_NET_ADMIN and alias netdev-%s “
“instead\n”, name);

Root which run /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit has both CAP_SYS_MODULE and CAP_NET_ADMIN capability. If not use netdev-xxx alias, above message will be logged.

Though this message can be ignored, if use netdev-xxx alias in /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf , it will not be logged.

# cat /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf
alias netdev-bond0 bonding
