Description Pekka Savola 2001-02-06 17:21:18 EST
Added to Zebra as it's rather close to it, and radvd would be a new package.

For router functionality (ie. autoconfiguration) in IPv6, route advertising is required.

IPv6 support has been merged in the initscripts, so I see no problem in adding IPv6 router
support either, first in powertools, later in the main distribution.

Lars Fenneberg has created radvd for this:

ftp://ftp.cityline.net/pub/systems/linux/network/ipv6/radvd/

I've taken the RPM, and enhanced and Red Hat'ified it:

http://www.netcore.fi/pekkas/linux/radvd-0.6.2-3.src.rpm

The changelog:
- use %{_mandir} and friends
- add more flesh to %doc
- streamline %config file %attrs
- streamline init.d file a bit:
   * add a default chkconfig: (default to disable for security etc. reasons; 
     also, the default config isn't generic enough..)
   * add reload/condrestart
   * minor tweaks
   * missing: localization support (initscripts-5.60)
- use %initdir macro

Adding support in the initscripts is less change than adding a package;
no new translations.

OK, it's being added now. Check rawhide for it the next time rawhide's updated.
