When I try to download via wget I must use --inet4-only option.
otherwise I will get this:

mobin@mobinuntu:~/Desktop/bbb/bb-kernel$wget https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/6.3-2017.05/arm-linux-gnueabihf/gcc-linaro-6.3.1-2017.05-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz 
--2017-08-10 05:09:47--  https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/6.3-2017.05/arm-linux-gnueabihf/gcc-linaro-6.3.1-2017.05-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz
Resolving releases.linaro.org (releases.linaro.org)... failed: No such file or directory.
 wget: unable to resolve host address ‘releases.linaro.org’

any ideas on solving this problem? (using wget without --inet4-only option)

According to these man pages:

I just added inet4_only = on to /etc/wgetrc config file and this option is set globally to all wget commands.
