Description Jason Vas Dias 2006-04-03 11:40:19 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #186322 +++

It would be nice for dhcdbd to support IPv6, as that would go a long way to
having support for the same in NetworkManager.  We'd like to make NetworkManager
the default in anaconda and IPv6 is a big feature for the next release, so this
would help us out a lot.

-- Additional comment from jvdias@redhat.com on 2006-03-22 16:47 EST --
Agreed, this has been on my to-do list for some time now; but NM also has to
handle IPv6 addresses and options, and request an 'ipv6_up' from dhcdbd .
Also NM must handle configuration of nameservers with IPv6 addresses - this
is already supported by the bind named d-bus support.

One point to note is that Ted Lemon of the ISC / Nominum (our upstream dhclient
source) is developing a new dhclient that fully supports both DHCPv6 and D-BUS
natively - this will be the way to go for the future, but it remains to be seen
whether this will be ready for FC-6. 

In any case, I'll get dhcdbd or its ISC replacement IPv6 ready for FC-6 .

dhcdbd has been obsoleted by NetworkManager 0.7.0.
