A search for disable ipv6 9.10
returns a lot of relevant advice.
The bottom line is that since kernel 2.6.30, ipv6 support has been built into the kernel, and cannot now be disabled the old way (by blacklisting modules).
You need to add ipv6.disable=1
to your kernel boot line
A fresh install of 9.10 defaults to using grub2
so to add this to your kernel boot line, you need to edit the file /etc/default/grub
( as root) and add the line
Then sudo update-grub
At the next boot, ipv6 will be disabled.
Re-reading your post, it looks like you are still using grub-legacy
you have edited the right file /boot/grub/menu.lst, but the ipv6.disable=1
needs to be on the same line as the one that begins
... not on the next line.
Maybe it already is, you can avoid these ambiguities by posting code using CODE tags (as above)
