IPV6 support is currently be worked on... Question, could you please supply the DNS configuration your using that limits it to only IPv6 address? tia...
Comment 2 Jean-Jacques Sarton 2008-03-06 10:24:22 EST
I have installed a nameserver (maradns) and have an entry for the ipv6 address of my pc, this entry ha a unique name (pc6). The entries are: # main address pc.home. A 192.168.1.2 # tap for use with virtual machines pc.home. A 10.1.1.1 # internal IPv6 Addresses pc.home. AAAA 2001:6f8:xxx:1::1 pc6.home. AAAA 2001:6f8:xxx:1::1 # IPv6 only pc ws.home. AAAA 2001:6f8:xxx:1::1 The code within nfs-utils/utils/mount/nfs4mount.c is IPv4-Only, this shall probably also apply to other files.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:02:32 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 02:41:58 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
