Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2008-04-20 19:41:10 UTC
Would be nice if iputils/ping would have idn-support.

There's a patch at fedora, worked for me:*checkout*/rpms/iputils/devel/iputils-20070202-idn.patch?rev=1.2

you should send the same request to the maintainer:
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-04-20 20:56:17 UTC
the fedora patch is pretty lame ... it forces idn on all over the place

when you e-mail upstream, refer them to our version instead
