I like it, since it promotes separation of concerns, but to each their own.

The broken link in that other LQ thread might refer to these, which I pulled from https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...re/1YWBSaPOzks --

http://ciar.org/ttk/public/rc.ipv6.txt

http://ciar.org/ttk/public/rc.ipv6.inet1-edit.txt

The first file would go in /etc/rc.d/rc.ipv6 while the second file's contents would be added to /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 somewhere.
Did Skaperen not reply?

Anyway, I modified the script I had seen on Usenet after asking there maybe before here. Works.

Again, maybe someone here can shed some light.

My laptop, running -current (not a stock kernel, due to issues with /dev/root on USB), can get an IPv6 address via DHCP from my parents' cable provider; but Mom's desktop, running -14.2, can't.

More specifically: my laptop gets a globally routable unicast address, but Mom's desktop gets nothing. Forcing the issue on the CLI with "dhcpcd -6 eth0" retrieves a link-local (fe80:: ) address, which dhcpcd rejects, then tries again until I hit Ctrl-C.

I see no difference in /sys/modules/ipv6/parameters/* between the two systems. I'm not sure where else to look. Any ideas out there?
