Disabling IPv6

Hi !

Can anybody please tell me how to disable IPv6 from Fedora 7 ? I already tried both "alias net-pf-10 off" and "blacklist inet6" in /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist files respectively.

Thanks in Advance..

... should work for FC7 as well.
NOTE: If there is a real problem which is solved by disabling IPv6, then that is not normal -- that means there is a bug either in Fedora or (more likely these days) a problem with the local network (or nameservers) which should be reported and fixed. If there's a real problem you should report the problem in Redhat bugzilla or to your ISP/network admin.
