int rtnl_addr_build_delete_request ( struct rtnl_addr *  addr,
int  flags,
struct nl_msg **  result 

Build a netlink request message to request deletion of an address

  • addr Address object to be deleteted.
  • flags Additional netlink message flags.
  • result Pointer to store resulting message.
Builds a new netlink message requesting a deletion of an address. The netlink message header isn't fully equipped with all relevant fields and must thus be sent out via nl_send_auto_complete() or supplemented as needed.

Minimal required attributes:

  • interface index (rtnl_addr_set_ifindex())
  • address family (rtnl_addr_set_family())

Optional attributes:

  • local address (rtnl_addr_set_local())
  • label (rtnl_addr_set_label(), IPv4/DECnet only)
  • peer address (rtnl_addr_set_peer(), IPv4 only)

Free the memory after usage using nlmsg_free().
0 on success or a negative error code.
