Description Peter Bieringer 2004-12-08 21:52:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.7.3)

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):

How reproducible:

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

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.
