Disable IPv6 in Fedora Core 8

Almost no pre-existing instructions on this issue works on Fedora Core 8.

Now here is how you can do this with FC8 to disable IPv6:

  1. Append the following line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

     install ipv6 /bin/true
    
  2. Append the following line to /etc/sysconfig/network:

     NETWORKING_IPV6=no
    
  3. Ensure your network adapter is configured not to use IPv6. This is an easy edit in the system-config-network gui, or do it manually in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (ammend for name of your adapter) by appending

     IPV6INIT=no
