Description of problem:
if you don't disable ipv6 from network-family 10, the name resolution
lookups induce a 20-30 seconds delay (with most routers, both sbc
static and dynamic configurations)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
following steps are trivial:
1. install fc2
2. configure network (make sure you have a dhcp enabled router)
3. instantiate your preferred browser (mozilla family).
4. go to a web-site you've never gone before... register the status
bar delay message (resolving blah blah blah)
Actual Results: status bar delay message (resolving blah blah blah)
Expected Results: should have fast name resolution lookups
if you disable network family protocol 10 (defaulted to ipv6)
everything is cool (like it used to be in red hat 1..9)
I'm pretty sure this is already know and is not a
redhat-config-network bug. A work around is available
echo "alias ipv6 off" >> /etc/modules.conf
However this will completely disable ipv6 if you use it.
right, it's kinda gross to completely disable ipv6...
why not going like:
echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modules.conf
this should disble only the 10th network protocol family! (this
solves the problem once and 4all) - it would be nice if you shipp it
refine the workaround and shipp it...
That didn't work for me.
alias net-pf-10 off
at the end of modprobe.conf did.
Now it's like lightning!
