Package openoffice.org 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.
AFAIK 2.0 is *supposed* to be ok with IPV6, e.g. the following implementations
in key infrastructure ...
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=35548 UNO ipv6 support
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=35288 INetURL support
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=33615 webdav ipv6
what exactly doesn't work ? Or what was the trigger for this autobug ?
We greped sources and search for AF_INET or AF_INET6 macro. Since AF_INET6 was not
found, our script filed this bug report. Of course there are many ways how to implement IPv6,
so the script might fail.
If you are sure IPv6 works in our Oo, close this but report. thx.
Upstream (Sun) informs me that OOo is supposed to work fine with ipv6 as it
currently stands (>= 2.0.4), which isn't to say there might be no bugs in
implementation, but the support is there.
It's trivial to test IPv6 support. If you need assistance please ask; it's as
simple as running 'radvd' on one machine on the Ethernet segment, with a
I don't actually know how to test OOo's IPv4 support, so I haven't done so myself.
