Comment 2 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-09 15:06:08 UTC
Upstream states:

"please note that the purpose of these tests is to check the integrity of 
the socat program, not of its environment - so do not overestimate their 
significance. I am pretty sure that socat itself is working correctly 
(at least "as designed")."

So I'm not sure what to do in such situation.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-09 15:10:37 UTC
I'd suggest checking, on Linux kernel, if the ipv6 and sctp support is enabled in the kernel, and if not skip over tests.
Comment 4 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-09 15:19:06 UTC
Well, this what we should check but last time I've tried to fix testsuite I remember there was some strange bug due to difference in bash versions on my and upstream systems... But let's keep this bug open and thank you for report.
Comment 5 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-09 21:19:47 UTC
Compare bug #270855 comment #6. These tests are OK to fail. They could be improved to not fail when the OS lacks some features. That requires a fairly large patch, and in the mean time the test suite is verbose enough for any user to figure out whether a failure is really important. We could of course set
