Description Bill C. Riemers 2008-06-05 09:26:54 UTC
Description of problem:

There are no configuration settings for IPV6 in NetworkManager.   Since many
enterprise environments use both IPV6 and IPV4 or only IPV6, this seems like a
huge show stopper.  Especially when NetworkManager is enabled by default and
"network" is disabled by default.

See related bug #439103.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2008-07-03 01:57:08 UTC
We're adding in IPv6 support over the next month or so.

Comment 3 Adam Goode 2009-01-06 17:35:23 UTC
Do you know if this will support tun6to4 as well? That's one thing I really miss with NetworkManager (using

Comment 4 Dan Williams 2009-02-14 20:37:44 UTC
Moving target since IPv6 is on the list for Fedora 11.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Comment 7 Felix Schwarz 2009-12-31 15:17:27 UTC
actually I think this bug can be closed because NetworkManager in Fedora 12 provides ipv6 support.

Comment 8 Dan Williams 2010-01-04 23:23:19 UTC
NM doesn't support DHCPv6 yet so lets leave this open for a bit

Comment 10 Dan Williams 2010-02-09 01:31:33 UTC
Builds in rawhide currently support DHCPv6.  See also bug 429710.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2010-12-05 07:10:22 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
