Something along the lines of listening only on, but not ∷0.  I’m sure exim has a listen-on-this-address directive, but it’s been so long I don’t remember what it’s called or where it is.  Personally, I would fix the problem by installing Postfix :-).

On boot, my SheevaPlug computer (running Ubuntu) emits this:


Starting MTA:eth0: link up, 100 Mb/s, full duplex, flow control disabled
Starting web server: lighttpd.
Starting network management services: snmpd.
Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd.
ALERT: exim paniclog /var/log/exim4/paniclog has non-zero size, mail system possibly broken ... failed!
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 sheeva ttyS0

Looking in /var/log/exim4/paniclog, I see

2011-11-11 19:52:02 IPv6 socket creation failed: Address family not supported by protocol


I'm not using IPv6; I don't know exim. Any pointers on how to resolve this, aside from replacing exim?
