Patch for ifup-eth to start dhcp6c when no IPv4 address is configured
Description of problem:
ifup-eth is supposed to start dhcp6c if the ifcfg-eth? has DHCPV6C=yes. But if IPADDR is blank, ifup-eth doesn't do that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Put these configuration lines in /etc/sysconfig/network:
Put these configuration lines in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:
The dhcp6c client process is not started, so the DHCPv6 server never assigns the appropriate client address.
The dhcp6c client should be started and the interface should get its IPv6 address from the local DHCPv6 server.
