Description Nick Lamb 2003-12-02 19:16:39 UTC
As IPv6 moves from experimental to broad deployment it's important that GUI tools are updated to handle IPv6 too. This bug is for IPv6 improvements to redhat-config-network, in a moment I will add a patch. Feedback is valued, especially from Red Hat staff who can say whether such a thing would be accepted into their version of this tool (if not perhaps it must fork).

Created attachment 96299 [details] IPV6INIT per connection Patch to provide a GUI option for some connection types (e.g. Ethernet) which sets the IPV6INIT flag in the appropriate interface configuration file in sysconfig. NB Even with this patch you must set NETWORKING_IPV6=yes manually. A future patch may (should) offer a GUI for that too.
