Description Pekka Savola 2002-04-12 17:30:41 EDT
Recently in the update, one problem in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown-ipv6 emerged.

The script tries to *always* shut down the 6to4 interface, this results to following behaviour
if only NETWORKING_IPV6=yes is defined in /etc/sysconfig/network (that is, a very simple case):

# ifdown eth0
ERROR    : [ipv6_trigger_radvd] Given pidfile '/var/run/radvd/radvd.pid' doesn't exist,
 cannot send trigger to radvd

This can be remedied by the attached, quite trivial patch.

This doesn't look nice, so should be fixed ASAP.
