network install via http from IPv6 server is problem
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
It seems anaconda doesn't resolve IPv6 host.
install from http server
use hostname assigned to IPv6
Unable to retrieve
>>> cannot determine address family of knedlo6
>>> we don't have reverse DNS for IPv6 yet
Installation works when I use IPv6 address of the host.
Installation from an IPv6 HTTP server *does* work. What doesn't work is exactly
what's in the error message: reverse DNS. We have our own resolver in the
loader and I have not yet expanded it to support IPv6 name resolution. It's on
my list and will be done in time for FC-6.
Try installation with the IPv6 address of the server rather than the hostname.
it seems to be fixed in anaconda-126.96.36.199-1
