Description Peter Vrabec 2006-07-11 06:19:59 EDT
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: 

/gnupg-1.4.3/util/http.c:725:    if( (fd=socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM, 0)) == -1 ) {
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/http.c:733:    mya.sin_family=AF_INET;
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/http.c:806:      if((sock=socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,0))==INVALID_SOCKET)
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/http.c:812:      addr.sin_family=AF_INET; 
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/http.c:916:      if(addr.sin_family!=AF_INET)
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/assuan-socket.c:57:    domain = AF_INET;
/gnupg-1.4.3/util/assuan-socket.c:84:  myaddr.sin_family = AF_INET;
/gnupg-1.4.3/keyserver/gpgkeys_finger.c:112:  addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
/gnupg-1.4.3/keyserver/gpgkeys_finger.c:121:      if (hp->h_addrtype != AF_INET)
/gnupg-1.4.3/keyserver/gpgkeys_finger.c:142:  sock = socket (AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
/gnupg-1.4.3/keyserver/gpgkeys_finger.c:163:  addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
/gnupg-1.4.3/keyserver/gpgkeys_finger.c:175:  sock = socket (AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
Comment 1 David Shaw 2006-07-20 10:29:02 EDT
Note that the code grepped for here is not actually used in most
cases (including the current RPMs).  GnuPG uses cURL for keyserver
access (which does support IPv6), and only uses the built-in support
when built without cURL support.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-07-20 18:23:41 EDT
The binary packages for Fedora aren't built to explicitly include curl, so it's
been hit-or-miss.  I'll change it to be a build requirement so that it's always
fixed up, and close this.  Thanks, David!
