Description Pekka Savola 2001-04-11 16:12:08 UTC
Please patch 'ftp' client (no need for the server IMO) to
enable ipv6 too.

.src.rpm against the latest (0.17-7) is available at

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-15 19:54:16 UTC
Thanks, done in 0.17-9

Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2001-04-25 20:36:11 UTC
Mm.. Did you forget to enable the patch too? :-)

I also noted that ftp client, when rebuilt, crashes on RHL62 even without any patches:

$ rpm -q readline

Too old readline I suppose.  But something has broken this some time ago.

Really fixed in 0.17-11.
