Using DRb on a Linux box

When trying to use DRb on my Linux box (SuSE 7.3 running Ruby 1.6.7), I
a SocketError indicating that getnameinfo: ai_family not supported.

According to the “Ruby Developer’s Guide”, page 337, the fix for this is
recompile Ruby with ./configure --enable-ipv6
I tried that and it didn’t work!!

Does that mean that the same “getnameinfo” error occured after recompiling

I don’t have the extact output, but it seemed to fail in the same manner. I
could attempt to reproduce the results, if desired.
