Hi all,

I have just tried a 2.6.20-rc5 kernel (I previously used a 2.6.19 one),
and I have noticed that the IPv6 router advertisement functionality is
broken. The interface is not attributed an IPv6 address anymore, despite
/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/ra_accept being set to 1 (also true for each
individual interface configuration).

Using tcpdump, I am seeing the router advertisement messages arriving on
the interface, but they seems to be ignored.

Does somebody have also seen this behaviour?

Bye,
Aurelien

ACK as far as seeing the same thing.  Another symptom: ping6 to the
link-local all-nodes address (ff02::1) is similarly broken.  tcpdump
shows the packets on the wire, but there's no response.  The most
recent kernel from kernel.org where IPv6 seems to be behaving properly
is 2.6.20-rc3.

Can you check if rc1, rc2, rc3 etc do work?

Thanks.

Will do that, but probably not in a very short timeframe (in other words
next evening, in about 20 hours).

I think the following patch

[IPV6] MCAST: Fix joining all-node multicast group on device initialization.
  http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg22663.html

that went in after 2.6.20-rc5 should fix this problem.

Thanks
Sridhar
