Package xmlsec1 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:
/xmlsec1-1.2.9/examples/xkms-server.c:312: sockfd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP);
/xmlsec1-1.2.9/examples/xkms-server.c:347: saddr.sin_family = AF_INET;
You should request that upstream. Nothing I, the packager can do about it.
I can't fix it, sorry, it's not just an option not activated !
To report upstream use bugzilla.gnome.org, thanks.
Also this is about an example, I don't think xmlsec1 itself does any
direct network access, it will reuse libxml2 for this.
Definitely a WONTFIX, complexifying an example in the source whose
putpose is to show how to use the library sounds really not a good idea.
You can still send patches to aleksey using the mailing-list
