Comment 1 Chris Feist 2010-07-09 15:33:04 EDT
To replicate on RHEL6, I did the following:
Add a file called blacklist-ipv6.txt in /etc/modprobe.d

It should contain the following two lines:
install ipv6 /bin/true
blacklist ipv6

Then in /etc/sysconfig/network, the following line should be added (or modified if it's already there):
NETWORKING_IPV6=no

Restart the computer,

Run ifconfig, you should only see a 'inet addr'.  If you run this with ipv6 enabled you'll see an 'inet6 addr' as well as an 'inet addr'

Test output follows (with IPV6 disabled), 0.16.2-8 is the old package, -9 is the new one.
