Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-1
Severity: important

I had used lighttpd for some time, but after the last upgrade of the
package lighttpd doesn't start anymore in my VPS using Virtuozzo:

Unpacking lighttpd (from .../lighttpd_1.4.19-1_i386.deb) ...
Setting up lighttpd (1.4.19-1) ...
Starting web server: lighttpd2008-03-28 00:40:34: (network.c.159) socket failed: Address family not supported by protocol 
invoke-rc.d: initscript lighttpd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing lighttpd (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The same problem when I try to start it later:

sirio:/# /etc/init.d/lighttpd start
Starting web server: lighttpd2008-03-28 00:51:02: (network.c.159) socket failed: Address family not supported by protocol 

Looking at the source into network.c it seems that the problem has
something to do with IPv6 -- it is not supported by Virtuozzo, so maybe
this problem makes lighttpd unusable if IPv6 is not supported at all.
