Question looking for wide-dhcp6 for slackware 14.2


hi,

i have looked everywhere but i cant find wide-dhcp6 as a slackware package or even a slackbuild file..

i tryed compiling it my self but i the original file gives me c errors i cant fix.

is there anyone how has or could make a slackbuild or binary package of wide-dhcp6? i would apprechiate it very much.

i need wide-dhcp6 becouse my isp thinks dynamic ipv6 with /56 prefixes is funny.. without it i will not be able to get ipv6 configured - or atleast i only now how to do it with wide-dhcp6.. i have no clue about dibbler or dhclient if it comes to dhcp6.

thank you.

Are you using rc.inet1 or NetworkManager or wicd for your network configuration?

The dhclient with Slackware64 14.2 appears to support DHCPv6 protocol via the -6 flag.

dhcpcd (which is the default for NetworkManager) also appears to support ipv6 as well.

My ISP doesn't provide ipv6 at all, so I can't really test anything, but I suspect that others here will be able to help you gain ipv6 connectivity in case I'm not able to.

i use rc.inet1 for the basics and rc.local for more..

i need to request pd via ppp0 i dont think thats something dhclient can do for me.. atleast not as easy as wide-dhcp6 or dibbler could..
i would really apprechiate a slackbuild for any of the two with a preferance of wide..

i would just compile it my self.. but it doesnt compile.

well im in germany.. deutsche telekom supplys ipv6 (if one can beleave it) since 2012.. i have it now becouse i changed my internet from adsl2 to fttc/vdsl with them.. i dont know why they think dynamic ipv6 would be funny but well.. thats all besides the point.

you can try applying to the sources all the patches in this tarball (in numerical order, with "patch -p1 < /path/to/$PATCH" from the sources directory), then it should build: they're all from debian but one from archlinux.

indeed that worked.. now i would have preferd a slackbuild file but oh well.. as long as it works im ok
thank you very much..

i think it may be strange that slackware only has isc dhcp and no optional wide or dibbler packages, but maybe someday it will have..
i see slackware as a router, server and desktop linux

This is the first I've heard of either, so it may just not be something that many users need. However, you're more than welcome to request one or both be added to Slackware (provided they don't conflict with the majority of setups) on the Requests for -current thread that is stickied at the top of the forum. I would recommend providing some backstory on what these provide and why they should be added to Slackware rather than simply requesting they be added.

ok tested it.. it works kinda but its strange.. the ipv6 i get via dhcp gets stuck on the lan interface (eth0) if there is a disconnect of the wan (ppp0).. now thats unexpected..

i guess ill use a tunnel and static subnet from he.net than.. stupid provider

----
ok yes i think ill do that bassmadrigal, thank for the tipp.

dhcpcd requests and assigns delegated prefixes, it's what I'm using.

/etc/dhcpcd.conf, after the default stuff:
Code:
allowinterfaces wan0 eth0.1 eth0.10 eth0.20 eth0.32
noipv6rs
logfile /var/log/dhcpcd.log

interface wan0
  ipv6rs                                       # enable router solicitation to get the default IPv6 route
  ia_na 1                                      # request an IPv6 address on the wan interface
  ia_pd 2 eth0.1 eth0.10 eth0.20 eth0.32       # request a prefix and assign /64s to vlans
  waitip 4
  waitip 6
I don't think dhcpcd behaves properly when run from NetworkManager - dhcpcd wants to do everything itself and doesn't like being micromanaged. I disabled NetworkManager and used /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

Just put:

Code:
IFNAME[1]="wan0"
IPADDR[1]=""
NETMASK[1]=""
USE_DHCP[1]="yes"
And "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 wan0_restart" and away it goes.

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/Netwo...-dhcp-dhcpcd.c contains this bit...

Code:
	
        /* IPv4-only for now.  NetworkManager knows better than dhcpcd when to
 	 * run IPv6, and dhcpcd's automatic Router Solicitations cause problems
 	 * with devices that don't expect them.
 	 */
