Bug 42380

GemStone/S 64 Bit,, 3.1


IPV6 support is now required

GemStone added support for IPv6 in v 3.1, for Linux, Solaris and AIX. In
3.1 and later, IPv4 addresses are represented internally as IPv4-mapped
IVp6 addresses. This requires that IPv6 be enabled in the OS kernel GemStone
is running on, even if IPv6 is not explicitly used.

While most OS kernels have IPv6 enabled by default, older versions of Linux
may be compiled without IPv6. On these, you not be able to establish socket
connections, as for example when attempting to login.

The error reported will be similar to
  socket(AF_INET6, SOCK_STREAM, 0) failed with errno=97,EAFNOSUPPORT, Address
family not supported


Ensure that you are using a version of Linux that is compiled with the
IPv6 modules.
