Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207640
Unable to disable IPv6 support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
In the network devices configuration page, unselecting "Enable IPv6 support",
clicking "OK" and then clicking edit again shows that "Enable IPv6 support" has
been enabled again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click edit on a network device.
2. Untick enable IPv6 support, click ok.
3. Open device properties again.
Enable IPv6 support is ticked.
Enable IPv6 support is unticked.
Noticed this also... On the "Edit Interface Eth0" screen, deselect "Enable IPv6
Support", enter and IPv4 Address (e.g., 192.168.1.100/24) then click OK. A
dialog pops up with "A value is required for the field 'IPv6 address'" even
though the IPv6 field is grayed. This prevents statically setting the eth0 device.
