Network manager does not enable IPv6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
Interfaces configured by NetworkManager do not appear to have IPv6 enabled
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow Network Manager to configure an interface
2. "/sbin/ip ad" to check the addresses on the NIC
Only the IPv4 address is present.
IPv6 link-local addresses should be present and if there is a IPv6 router on the
network running radvd the global-scope IPv6 addresses should also be assigned.
Invalidating this bug - this was caused by a combination of the disabled ipv6
support in Fedora 7 test 3 and the iwl3945 driver being broken.
