Description Jean-Luc Duprat 2012-03-03 13:03:46 EST
There are several versions of fping that support ipv6.
fping3 and 2.4b2_to-ipv6 for example.

Fedora needs either a version that supports both ipv4 and ipv6; or two separate packages.
Comment 1 Charles R. Anderson 2012-03-03 17:40:17 EST
fping-2.4b2_to-ipv6 was shipped with Fedora 16 and 15 (and earlier):

>cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
>rpm -q fping
>rpm -ql fping |grep sbin

fping-3 is in testing for Fedora 16 now, and will be backported to 15 as well:

>rpm -q fping
>rpm -ql fping | grep sbin
