Description Peter Vrabec 2006-08-23 11:12:50 EDT
Description of problem:
It seems anaconda doesn't resolve IPv6 host.

How reproducible:
linux askmethod
install from http server
use hostname assigned to IPv6
Actual results:
Unable to retrieve

>>> cannot determine address family of knedlo6
>>> we don't have reverse DNS for IPv6 yet

Additional info:
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.
