Description of problem: I have a SunFireV40Z (4xAMD Opteron Dual Core) with 16
GB memory running FC4.
When using konqueror as webbrowser I saw it hanging if connecting to some sites.
I found out the "ifconfig eth0" presents some IPV6 settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:Each time when
connecting with konqueror to some site supporting IPV6
Steps to Reproduce:
Konqueror display the desired website
Additional info: I think this results from the fact that the NIC is configured
with IPV6 support:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:09:3D:13:CF:4F
inet addr:18.104.22.168 Bcast:22.214.171.124 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::209:3dff:fe13:cf4f/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:32596073 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

RX bytes:11297416968 (10.5 GiB) TX bytes:29202868514 (27.1 GiB)
The problem disappears if switching off the IPV6 support (adding the line
"alias net-pf-10 off" to /etc/modprobe.conf).
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Can't reproduce the behavior under FC6!
