Package bridge-utils lacks IPv6 support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
This bug was reported automaticaly in connection with IPv6 project.
Our aim is to support IPv6 in all Fedora Core packages so FC6 and RHEL5 will be ready for IPv6.
This package seems to lack IPv6 support as is illustrated in attached log.
Here follows part of scanning log (grep -r F_INET *)/up to 30 lines:
/bridge-utils-1.0.6/libbridge/libbridge_init.c:33: if ((br_socket_fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)) < 0)
It only opens a network socket in order to do ioctls to control bridging --
there's no real "IPv4 support" here.
Why wasn't this bug blocking the IPv6 tracker bug #195271?
