Bug #5563

Fix bug in drb tests if hostname does not resolve to a local IP

Added by Jeremy Evans over 4 years ago. Updated almost 3 years ago.

ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30 revision 33570) [i386-openbsd]


3 of the drb tests leave the hostname part of the druby URI empty instead of using localhost. When a hostname is not provided, ruby uses the system hostname, which usually resolves to a local IP address, but not always. This causes the tests to fail if the system hostname doesn't resolve to a local IP address. The tests also appear to hang, since the connection timeout is 100 seconds.

The attached patch fixes this case by using localhost as the hostname in the 3 tests that did not already do that, making them consistent with the other tests.
