Description Valdis Kletnieks 2007-11-12 16:54:52 EST
Description of problem:
When launching Wireshark on my laptop, it tosses 2 error messages:
 adns: /etc/resolv.conf:3: invalid nameserver address
adns: /etc/resolv.conf:5: invalid nameserver address

(Yes, there *are* BIND nameservers listening at those addresses, and they work
just fine for pretty much everything that uses the resolver in glibc).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
Wireshark should use IPv6 DNS servers if they are configured.  Failing that, it
should at least be able to *parse* the line, realize it's IPv6, and fallback to
to the 3 valid IPv4 nameservers also listed.

Still reproducible with 0.99.7 - I filed an upstream bug and will dig into this
issue .. 
Comment 2 Radek Vokal 2007-11-21 14:04:23 EST
Ok, the problem seems to be adns .. it lacks the IPv6 support. I can either
disable adns support (which was enabled recently and I haven't realized this
issue) or wait till it gets fixed on adns side .. 
Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2007-12-21 04:58:27 EST
New release of adns was just added to rawhide and the IPv6 support is still not
there. So I'm removing adns support from wireshark (it can be easily recompiled
with the support, see spec file) and closing this bug as WONTFIX.
