Description Ulrich Drepper 2003-11-05 23:52:59 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6a)

Description of problem:
IPv6 support is completely missing.  This manivests in multiple ways:

r-c-p complains about lines like

ipsix           IN      AAAA    fe80::207:e9ff:fe9b

Zone descriptions like

zone "\[xfec0000000000000/64].ip6.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "fec0.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

are not recognized as reverse tables.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add IPv6 data to bind configuration
2.start r-c-b

Actual Results:  unknown ['ipsix', 'IN', 'AAAA', 'fe80::207:e9ff:fe9b']

.ip6.arpa zones not recognized as reverse tables in GUI.

Expected Results:  support IPv6 everywhere IPv6 is supported.

Note that the format I used in my zone files is not to be used
anymore.  The bit string format has been deprecated.  Long live the
nibble format (hopefully).

Anyway, my current config file is not even parsed.  Any proposals on
what data you need to debug this?  I get this message:

# system-config-bind
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/system-config-bind-gui", line 95, in ?
    cfg = ConfNamed.ConfNamed("/etc/named.conf",ROOTDIR)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-bind/ConfNamed.py", line 324, in __init__
    current[-1].setOpt(val[0],join(val[1:],' '))
IndexError: list index out of range

It's not related to the IPv6 zone info but the named.conf file is
quite complex (but works fine).

The latest system-config-bind-4.0.0-16 in FC-3/4 / Rawhide should fix
this problem. It parses the bit-string format, but will always write
the nibble format .

Seems to work OK in FC3+.
