Description of problem:
(My) current version of network-functions-ipv6 uses 2000::/3 as
default route because of historic issue, when older Linux kernel don't
support manual setup of ::/0 as default route.
Times have changed, now it looks like that at least the newest kernel
of Fedora Core 1 and 2 support this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup IPv6 with a default route via initscripts
Actual Results: Default route is 2000::/3
Expected Results: Default route should be ::/0
Created attachment 108152 [details]
Patch for network-functions-ipv6 to change default route
Added (minus some of the commenting). Will be in 8.02-1.
Also added to FC3, RHEL4, FC2 branches... will be in future builds of
those, if they happen.
