Disable ipv6



Dear List,
  I'm trying to disable ipv6 but to no avail [2.6.9-89.0.7.ELsmp x86_64]

/etc/modprobe.conf

alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off

/etc/sysconfig/network

NETWORKING_IPV6=no
IPV6INIT=no

But lsmod shows that the ipv6 module is still being loaded and 

ifconfig -a shows an ipv6 address for each interface and 

sit0      Link encap:IPv6-in-IPv4
          NOARP  MTU:1480  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

dmesg shows

NET: Registered protocol family 10
Disabled Privacy Extensions on device ffffffff........(lo)
IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
divert: not allocating divert_blk for non-ethernet device sit0
NET: Registered protocol family 27


So what else do I need to do to stop ipv6 from loading? With the current
kernel bug we are trying to disable any unused modules but ipv6 refuses
to die!

thanks

iain
