Package: josm Version: 0.0.svn2255-1 Severity: normal JOSM started complaining about not being able to access the API server some time ago. I initially suspected a temporary brokenness on that server, but since it persisted I eventually tried to debug it with Wireshark. I found out that even though the DNS queries were sent and got answered, JOSM didn't attempt to open a socket to the server. What attracted my attention was that the A query did get answers, but the answer section for the AAAA query is empty (apparently the API servers are not available over IPv6). Then I remembered about a recent thread in debian-devel about changing a default value for an IPv6-related kernel parameter, and tried that out: ,---- | echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/bindv6only `---- (The previous value was 1). This change “fixed” JOSM, and I can now connect to the API servers again.
I seem to remember the conclusion of the thread was that applications that are broken by the new default value should be signalled and fixed, so here's my report for JOSM :-) Thanks, Roland. -- System Information: Debian Release: squeeze/sid APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (1, 'experimental') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 2.6.32-trunk-686 (SMP w/1 CPU core) Locale: LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=fr_FR.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash Versions of packages josm depends on: ii libgettext-commons-java 0.9.6-1 Java classes for internationalizat ii libmetadata-extractor-j 2.3.1+dfsg-1 JPEG metadata extraction framework ii openjdk-6-jre 6b17~pre3-1 OpenJDK Java runtime, using Hotspo ii openstreetmap-map-icons 1:0.0.svn18468-1 Collection of map icons (classic s Versions of packages josm recommends: ii josm-plugins 0.0.svn18009-1 Plugins for JOSM josm suggests no packages. -- no debconf information -- Roland Mas 'And what would humans be without love?'
