Description Ivo Sarak 2006-09-23 19:16:27 UTC
Description of problem:
After system update the system startup will halt for about 20 minutes because
the init IPv6 is segfaulting and consuming all of the system CPU time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6test3;
2. Perform a system update with yum;
Actual results:
System will have a lot of difficulty to start up again. There is no lockup, but
it will take a lot of time the system will past the network startup.

Expected results:
No such issues.

Additional info:

If I do get the system up and issue "/etc/init.d/network restart" then I get this:
[root@lappar ~]# /etc/init.d/network restart
/etc/init.d/network: line 54:  2240 Segmentation fault

The issue is not kernel related - tested with kernel-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6 and

How to disable the IPv6 as I do not even need it?
