Description Peter Vrabec 2006-07-11 10:14:29 UTC
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)

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2006-07-11 10:27:34 UTC
It only opens a network socket in order to do ioctls to control bridging --
there's no real "IPv4 support" here.

Closing NOTABUG.

Why wasn't this bug blocking the IPv6 tracker bug #195271?
