Description Peter Vrabec 2006-07-11 06:27:57 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: 

/quota-tools/rquota_svc.c:204:	if (!(h = gethostbyaddr((const char *)&(addr->sin_addr), sizeof(addr->sin_addr), AF_INET)))
/quota-tools/rquota_server.c:48:#define NETTYPE AF_INET
/quota-tools/svc_socket.c:39:	if ((sock = socket (AF_INET, type, protocol)) < 0) {
/quota-tools/svc_socket.c:53:	addr.sin_family = AF_INET;

Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2008-08-21 07:46:04 EDT
After quick investigation by Kamil Dudka and me I'm closing that bugzilla CANTFIX. Those Ipv4 things are comming from sunrpc related parts of the sourcecode. sunrpc is coming from glibc, lacks IPv6 support and this support was rejected by glibc maintainers. They recommend usage of different RPC implementation (TI-RPC) for that and refuse any changes to sunrpc glibc module. Bugzilla against glibc requesting sunrpc IPv6 enhancement was closed deferred, so therefore CANTFIX at the moment, will check the possibility of libtirpc usage.
