    Hey guys

    Well I discovered how awesome it is that tomato is such a versatile unix server,
    and with a little extra storage can do all SORTS of stuff.

    One thing I'm trying out requires IPv6 support in python though.
    And the optware python2.6 I'm running doesn't support IPV6.

    I don't know how to remedy this by hopefully finding a package that does?

    I've compiled my own stuff before under linux but ~ 15 years ago,
    and the router is the only linux install in the house. I don't fancy messing
    around with cygwin as trying to compile with that for me was always a head banging experience.
    All in all , trying to compile on the router would be a last resort I think.

    Can someone point me to the best way to approach this problem?

    Install your favorite distro in a VM on your Windows/Mac. Native compilation isn't too difficult, just time consuming. Too bad that bunches of apps weren't compiled for IPv6. I'd like to have nginx + IPv6. Time for some DIY.
