Description A.J. Werkman 2010-02-07 10:10:40 UTC
Description of problem:
Name resolution in a rawhide network installation fails, when giving a IPv6 DNS address

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda 13.25

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a network installation
2. In the "Manual TCP/IP configuration screen" give a static IPv4 address and a static IPv6 address
3. In the DNS field give (a) a IPv4 address (b) a IPv6address
Actual results:
With a IPv4 DNS address installation continues
With a IPv6 DNS address installation stops with a name resolution error on the installation server name.

Expected results:
IPv6 name resolution should work if a IPv6 DNS address is configured

Additional info:
In general network configuration seems to depend on correct IPv4 addressing. IPv4 addressing is at the moment a "conditio sine qua none".
I also refer to bug #562529

In the "Manual TCP/IP configuration screen" you now can both give IPv6 and IPv4 addresses. But there is only room for one type of default gateway and DNS address. Isn't it a good idea to be able to have a IPv4 and IPv6 field for gateway and DNS-server?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.

IPv6 name resolution works for me in Fedora 15. Special DNS field for IPv6 is not necessary given multiple addresses (ipv4 or ipv6) separated by comma can be entered. For gateway, we support only one address (ipv4 or ipv6) so it really seems as a good idea to support multiple gateways in similar way, or better have special entry for ipv6 gateway as you suggested. This probably concerns kickstart and boot options too. I'll open a new bug for it.
