I do not know if this email is appropriate for this mailing list, but I
thought I would give it a try.
Is there anyone out there who is using(or attempting to use) IPv6 with PPC
and a 2.6.11 kernel with whom I could email directly with some specific
One of my questions is at boot time, my eth0 device does not have it's
link-local address. I must issue an "ifconfig eth0 down" and then an
"ifconfig eth0 up" to get this work work.
Also, it does not auto-configure the info for a link-global prefix/address
that is provided by the router announcements.
There are PCs in my network on i686 athlons, i386 running 2.6.5 kernels that
do in fact handle the above IPv6 correctly.
I do understand that there are IPv6 mailing list and I do belong to them,
but thus far no one has been able to assist me in these issues.
I apologize if this is not the correct forum for these types of questions.
