Ping, is this still happening?
Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2006-09-12 11:45:58 EDT
Yes it does and there is nothing I can do to prevent this. You have to manually
disable ip6tables, if you are setting net-pf-10 to off in /etc/modprobe.conf.

ip6tables can not verify if the will be an error loading the netfilter-ipv6
kernel modules before trying to load it.

Only one thing is possible: using NETWORKING_IPV6 from /etc/sysconfig/network.
But I think it could result in problems, if some program or driver is manually
loading ipv6. Then there is no ipv6 firewall at all.

Closing this, works ok.
