Greetings;

In /etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-eth0 I have the line as in the subject, but I note that bringing up eth0, at a fixed ipv4 address in the 192.168 block, there is about a 5 second pause doing it, and ifconfig does report what looks like valid ipv6 addresses for both eth0 and lo.

How does one go about disabling that?


What happens if you add:

install ipv6 /bin/true

to /etc/modprobe.conf? Forgive me if that doesn't work, I don't have a Fedora box to play with at the moment, only RHEL 5.
