Ruby 1.8.6p287 can support IPv6 on Kamikaze today
|Reported by:||daniel.golle@…||Owned by:||developers|
in the Makefile of the ruby package IPv6 gets disabled because the socket library won't get build if it is enabled.
however, it is possible to have ruby IPv6 enabled on Kamikaze today by adding --enable-wide-getaddrinfo to the configure opts. (wide is the IPv6 implementation on Linux)
I successfully built and tested Ruby with this option on the atheros/mips and x86 target. I also tried building with this option enabled while having IPv6 disabled in openwrt config. result: Ruby built with IPv6 does not depend on an IPv6-enabled kernel. It will just raise an exception if one tries to create an AF_INET6 socket.
so please... enable it :)
