I need to totally stop ANY indication of ipv6 connectivity, how.




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.
