noipv6 does not disable ipv6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
Installing the current F7 tree and booting with "noipv6" and then also
keeping IPv6 disabled during the network setup still keeps ipv6 enabled
on the system. I haven't found any place in anaconda writing out a
file to /etc/modprobe.d/ which disables ipv6.

./ChangeLog- to /etc/sysconfig/network anymore, initscripts does not use it.
./ChangeLog- Instead, write a file to /etc/modprobe.d containing
./ChangeLog: 'install ipv6 /bin/true' in the cases where users want the IPv6
./ChangeLog- stack completely disabled.
