Description Robert Scheck 2004-10-10 16:06:36 EDT
Description of problem:
wget has IPv6 support, but it isn't enabled currently, so downloading 
from IPv6 hosts fails.

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. host -t AAAA ipv6.host.tld
   -> ipv6.host.tld has AAAA address ::1
1. wget http://ipv6.host.tld
   -> --22:04:51--  http://ipv6.host.tld/
   ->           => `index.html'
   -> Resolving ipv6.host.tld... failed: Host not found.
Actual results:
IPv6 support in wget isn't enabled; the following is working for me:

Expected results:
IPv6 support in wget should be enabled.
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2004-10-11 04:59:19 EDT
Wget's current IPV6 support breaks downloads on hosts without IPV6 
interfaces. Try to disable IPV6 on your machine p.e. if you have  
alias net-pf-10 off 
install ipv6 /bin/true 
in your modprobe.conf file and reboot (or get rid of the already 
loaded  ipv6 module by any other means).  
I'm waiting for the upstream maintainers to fix this.

Oh sorry, I didn't recognize this (I'm already living in a only IPv4+6 
world), you're totally right.
