Description Daniel Roesen 2005-06-16 10:09:20 EDT
I'd like to see full IPv6 support in Anaconda's network configuration. That

per interface chosing, wether:
- no IPv6
- stateless autoconfig
- DHCPv6
- static config

and globally:
- DNS resolvers (if static/autoconfig, or overriding DHCPv6)
- default gateway

It's something we can consider, but realistically, it's the sort of thing that
will move along quicker if someone with the interest steps up to start working
on it.  We can help in providing guidance on how to go about it on
anaconda-devel-list in response to specific questions.

I'll add this to my list of possible FC5 targets, though, to try to help getting
someone interested.
Comment 2 Daniel Roesen 2005-06-16 16:33:51 EDT
Excellent. If this will need testing, count me in. Gives me a reason to install
DHCPv6 server. :-P Don't have time to do any development, nor am I Python
knowledgable... :-(
Comment 3 Curtis Doty 2005-06-16 23:20:18 EDT
As close as I've come is a brutish way to turn it *off* using kickstart.

/bin/echo '
# disable IPV6 for now
alias net-pf-10 off
' >>/etc/modprobe.conf

Is there not a more elegant way for even the removal?
Comment 4 David Cantrell 2006-07-17 10:57:21 EDT
I'm closing this since we're actively implementing IPv6 support in anaconda in
rawhide so it can be included in FC6.
