RFE: option to Enable IPv4/IPv6 in Configure TCP/IP dialog
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
For network installs, the dialog "Configure TCP/IP" should have separate check
boxes to enable IPv4 and IPv6, with the default being ON. So there would be
three check boxes:
[*] Use dynamic IP configuration (BOOTP/DHCP)
[*] Enable IPv4
[*] Enable IPv6
Specifing "noipv6" as a "boot: linux" paraeter partially covers turning off
Enable IPv6, but that requires planning too far in advance (using it becomes a
two-pass process) and does not allow for separate independent Enable IPv4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I definitely second this request since when using DHCP for a network
installation on a network where only IPv4 is enabled, the IPv6 DHCP request
takes nearly 1 minute to timeout after the IPv4 one worked instantly.
It'll be quite annoying for many users (IPv6 still isn't that common), so having
an easy way to disable it would be verey welcome.
David was going to add this I believe
Works for me in anaconda-126.96.36.199-1. Thank you.
