Description Steve Hill 2007-05-22 21:21:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Interfaces configured by NetworkManager do not appear to have IPv6 enabled

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow Network Manager to configure an interface
2. "/sbin/ip ad" to check the addresses on the NIC
Actual results:
Only the IPv4 address is present.

Expected results:
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.

Comment 1 Steve Hill 2007-06-23 06:38:47 EDT
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.
