Hello Group,

I am getting a 'WARN  TCPServer Error: Address family not supported by
protocol - socket(2)' warning message every time when I try running
webrick. I am using ruby 1.9.1 with rails 2.3.2.

$ ruby script/server
=> Booting WEBrick
=> Rails 2.3.2 application starting on
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
[2009-05-10 10:57:35] INFO  WEBrick 1.3.1
[2009-05-10 10:57:35] INFO  ruby 1.9.1 (2009-01-30) [i686-linux]
[2009-05-10 10:57:35] WARN  TCPServer Error: Address family not
supported by protocol - socket(2)
[2009-05-10 10:57:35] INFO  WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=24721

Any idea?

Thank you,
