FYI, that tutorial won’t work with kernel 2.6.30 and after. IPV6 is integrated into the kernel, and not as a blockable module anymore. You can add ipv6.disable=1 to your menu.lst with 2.6.30 and newer kernels to get rid of it.
I know you cn disable it through yast…but I don’t think that disables it completly as the tutorial says.
I was just wondering if it was an update in 11.1 that was missing a line. If so, the tutorial is a bit outdated and might need to be edited. I was looking for that line for a while thinking I was doing something wrong, but I beleive that it just doesn’t exist anymore on an updated version.
It is very possible that some of the config files have changed. Opensuse uses a non standard filesystem(some things are moved from the default). That tutorial was last edited in 2007. If
ip a | grep inet6 didn’t return anything, then I wouldn’t worry.
