Is IPv6 over the wifi interface supported in the SDK?

 I'm hearing that IPv6 is supported by android, at least over the wifi
interface, but I cannot do anything with IPv6 through the SDK at all.
I am running Android 2.1 on an N1.

I can see that at the OS level, the wifi interface has a link local
inet6 address:

ufo:~ newton$ adb shell
$ cat /proc/net/if_inet6
00000000000000000000000000000001 01 80 10 80       lo
fe80000000000000022376fffe8d1e63 0c 40 20 80     eth0

... although ifconfig does not show it:

$ ifconfig eth0
eth0: ip 192.168.1.2 mask 255.255.255.0 flags [up broadcast running
multicast]

If in Java I call getInetAddresses on a java.net.NetworkInterface, I
only get the inet4 address.

As I'd expect from the above, I cannot connect via any Java APIs to
another link local IPv6 host on the same wifi lan

Depending on my approach I get "socket level is invalid", a bad socket
options error, host unreachable, or timeouts. Has anyone seen this
work or have any insight?

thanks
M.

1. About Google Map Installation Package

Hi All,

I have couple of doubts regarding Google Map Usage as below:

1. I am able to run Google Map Application on Emulator with proper API
key. Google Map is not open source and not available on Target Board,
so I am not able to execute this application. Does same API Key hold
good for Target Board also or Is there something else need to be done
for it ?

2. What will Google provide as Google Map Installation Package ( Legal
one )  for Google Map for Target ? i.e. How Google Map Installer will
be different from Emulator's Google Map ? What are the other security
means used to Secure Google Map Installer from running on Target Board
except API Key and signed .apk file ?

2. Building OpenCore

Hi,

 I was trying to build 'opencore' from the android package, as it
doesnot get built when u compile the whole android source code. So, I
assume one has to build it seperately.

Does anyone know how to compile opencore for arm arch. bcoz when i
give ARCH=arm & CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi- it says no rule to make
target. ???
