However that IS the official way to stop a module loading at the module level,
it effectively says t use /bin/true as the loader for the module, which does
nothing but return a happy retcode. There is probably stuff
in /etc/sysconfig smewhere which can turn it off at a higher level.

I have successfully turned off IPv6 using Andy's suggestion, and my thanks to him.

However, I have not found any "cleaner" method of indicating to the system that I have no intention or interest in running IPv6. Nothing in /etc/sysconfig, for example. Does anyone know where I might nicely indicate that to the system, or whether this is the only/accepted/recommended way?

IPV6 is only supposed to load if /etc/sysconfig/network contains the line:


If you don't want IPV6, delete that line or set it to


BTW, a quick scan of /etc/rc.d/init.d/network would have revealed this.
