IPv6 in Puppy linux 5
 
I have installed a new modem that makes IPV6 possible, and switched IPv6 on at my provider. I can now use IPv6 addresses in addition to IPv4 addresses on all my boxes (Vista and Ubuntu) except the one that runs Puppy Linux 5.2.5.
How can I enable IPv6 on the Puppy box?

I found http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=25098. The scripts (/usr/sbin/net-setup.sh & /etc/rc.d/rc.network) listed there are older than those actually included in 5.2.5. I am not sufficiently knowledgeble to risk using these older scripts.

I doubt they support IPv6 in the standard pup.

Consider a new kernel based distro instead. Puppy is a limited use distro mainly for older systems.

/lib/modules/2.6.33.2/kernel

./net/ipv6
./net/ipv6/ipv6.ko
./net/ipv6/netfilter/ip6t_ipv6header.ko
./net/ipv6/netfilter/nf_conntrack_ipv6.ko

DOTconfig :

DOTconfig-k2.6.33.2-27MAY2010-LUPU-SMP-TICKLESS
579:CONFIG_IPV6=m
580:# CONFIG_IPV6_PRIVACY is not set
581:# CONFIG_IPV6_ROUTER_PREF is not set
582:# CONFIG_IPV6_OPTIMISTIC_DAD is not set
586:# CONFIG_IPV6_MIP6 is not set
593:CONFIG_IPV6_SIT=m

726:# IPv6: Netfilter Configuration
728:CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK_IPV6=m
736:CONFIG_IP6_NF_MATCH_IPV6HEADER=m


AS USUAL : USE THE modprobe COMMAND
Code:

modprobe -v --first-time ipv6

Because the kernel might be a little out of date ,
to recognize the modem correctly or at all ,
try later Puppies :
