cvs pserver fails with IPv6-only hosts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
CVS fails to contact a server which has only AAAA and not A addresses,
because it uses gethostbyname() instead of getaddrinfo().
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvs co mtd
Unknown host cvs.infradead.org.
It should work. Well, no -- it should fail because xinetd is also
IPv6-challenged and isn't actually listening on cvs.infradead.org at
the moment -- but it should at least _try_ :)
I guess CVS 1.11.x hasn't andy IPv6 support and a IPv6 patch only will
work if the (unneeded?) krb4 support is disabled.
