That is either a zypper or libcurl problem, I would say. Unless of
course it's failing for download.opensuse.org
in which case there may
not be another mirror. (for the metalink file for instance).
Zypper should be cleverer, yes.
Since a week or two I have done a configuration change for curl, I have a
/root/.curlrc file with a line "--ipv4" which should force curl to use
ipv4 always, but I still do not know if it is honored.
A neat solution would be that none of those
that there existed IPv6 addresses, and so could not try them.
Yes that would cure the symptom, but it would be better to
investigate the cause, i.e. why those applications don't work
like e.g. ping6 (from my earlier posting).
I don't know if they fail intermediately, I think it does. Lets
try, forcing ipv6:
cer@Telcontar:~> curl -o p --ipv6
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 2001:67c:2178:8::13: Network is
It fails instantly, that's good. The problem, for some people, is
that sometimes it tries to use IPv6.
Because it "works for me" (I currently only have link-local IPv6), I
would tend to say that is a configuration problem, and those people
ought to pursue that first.
Sorry, what configuration problem? I lost you.
If you mean like the one I mentioned above for curl, yes, I did that and
I'm trying to confirm it works. But many programs do not have a switch to
force ipv4 or ipv6.
