I have the following in /etc/sysctl.conf:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth1.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.ppp0.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.tun0.disable_ipv6 = 1
but its not enough to stop this from ip a:
: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state
UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether 00:1f:c6:62:fc:bb brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff <--ipv6 crap.
Any ipv6 connectivity is at least 100 miles away. So I need a way to shut
it off so thouroughly that nothing in a ./configure script believes its
a working connection. Its creating all sorts of hate, discontent and
general havoc trying to build a tarball because it makes things disable
ipv4, the only WORKING connectivity my little 7 or 9 machine network,
all behind dd-wrt anyway, has.
Please advise, we are still in jurrasic park here in WV.
