    [discussed in jabber conference] It is impossible to get working prosody instance, if system has IPv6-only nameserver. Only way to do something now — is install dnsmasq locally, setup it as proxy for original DNS and point resolv.conf to

    Issue was also reported downstream, see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1256677

    I tried to backport this patch to 0.9 myself, but it doesn't seem to solve the issue. Does the patch require more/other changes?

  6. Robert Scheck on

    I might be wrong, but from my point of view the patch is faulty: Putting "nameserver ::1" into /etc/resolv.conf does not work, while replacing self:addnameserver(""); in net/dns.lua by self:addnameserver("::1"); works?! In case I am terribly wrong during my tests, please let me know.

    That patch depends on IP family detection in util.ip which is not in 0.9.

    Do you have a pointer/URL to a commitdiff for backporting this (maybe even downstream only) to 0.9?

    http://hg.prosody.im/0.10/rev/e108c3f97f26 and http://hg.prosody.im/0.10/rev/0200945313c9 should be enough I believe

    This has been backported to 0.9 and is included in the 0.9.9 release.
