slackware current ipv6
 
Hi,

I'm experiencing connectivity issues w/ current (2009-05-24).

In the past, I've been able to avoid using ipv6 (opendns, my isp and home router don't support it) simply by making sure that the option in firefox->about:config-> diable.dns.ipv6 = true > was set.

Now it seems that many things are tring to use ipv6. ssh (I have to diable the option in ssh_config) and filezilla for example. Blacklisting the ipv6 module is not enough...

I wonder, is there something that is done differently with ipv6 in current? I wasn't experiencing any of these troubles with 12.2.

Thanks

Does `lsmod` output still show the ipv6 module being loaded? How are you blacklisting the module?

no

with:
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

Hmmm: maybe this is a clue.

I've been setting a static IP through inet1.conf

If I use DHCP instead the problem seems to go away.
Looks like it may be a problem between my slack box and my home router.
