Hello folks, UDPSocket requires address family given on initialization, so it's not possible to create an UDPSocket and *then* decide, to which hosts to send packets to. That's a problem for Ruby's resolver if you've got AF_INET6 nameservers in your /etc/resolv.conf. The following very dirty hack chooses AF_INET6 for UDPSocket, if the nameserver's address contains colons (:). --- /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb Mon Feb 7 16:24:09 2005 +++ resolv2.rb Sun Apr 23 20:53:17 2006 @@ -621,7 +621,7 @@ super() @host = host @port = port - @sock = UDPSocket.new + @sock = UDPSocket.new(host.index(':') ?
