syslog being trashed by dhcpcd


My /var/log/syslog file is being spammed by dhcpcd
it fills up with
Jan 23 13:59:15 darkstar dhcpcd[1292]: wlan0: fe80::1691:82ff:fe2e:215 router available
Jan 23 14:02:01 darkstar dhcpcd[1292]: wlan0: fe80::1691:82ff:fe2e:215 router available
Jan 23 14:04:30 darkstar dhcpcd[1292]: wlan0: fe80::1691:82ff:fe2e:215 router available
making it pretty much useless
Whats the best way to make dhcpcd behave its self ?
or just block these messages.

Do you use IPv6? If not, have you tried solution from here:
https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.co...-in-the-syslog
Quote:
Edit /etc/dhcpcd.conf and add a single line to the bottom of the file "noipv6rs"

added noipv6 to the end of /etc/dhcpcd.conf
"Don't attmept to configure an IPv6 address"
rebooted (/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart didn't work)
now dhcpcd is not logging useless messages to syslog
Thanks
