Description Peter Vrabec 2006-07-11 06:20:26 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:

Unfortunately, this also means that HPLIP doesn't work with the 
default /etc/hosts file generated by the FC6 Anaconda (hpssd can't connect 
to ::1, thus connecting to hpiod on localhost fails). This breaks everything 
requiring HPLIP's features beyond HPIJS (scanning on OfficeJets, hp-toolbox 
etc.). If completely fixing HPLIP for IPv6 is going to take some time, at the 
very least some hack to resolve localhost to instead of ::1 is 
needed. (If I change /etc/hosts to use as the IP for localhost, it 
works again.)
