Description Peter Vrabec 2006-07-11 08:33:59 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.

What test was performed that determined elilo lacks IPv6 support?  Can I get the
results of it?
Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2006-07-18 05:40:53 EDT
We grep sources and search F_INET and F_INET6 macro.
$ grep -R INET *
src/lib/efi.c:    fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
src/lib/efi.c.orig:    fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);

When I look at code it seems to me this bug was reported by mistake. Elilo doesn't use socket 
to send or receive date. It use it to get some driver information, so this is similar to #198380.

Close this bug if I'm right, please.

Yup, that's what it looks like to me too.  Thanks for investigating.
