I was generally looking at how redhat, etc, handled ipv6. I thought that this approach was the cleanest (note this is how a user would configure it): http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-redhat-fedora-centos-ipv6-network-configuration/ Also, with Owl having "redhat" / "centos" 'isms, i started work using some patches / scripts which I found here: http://www.bieringer.de/linux/IPv6/index.html I can't seem to see them today though. I do however have a directory which contains some of them, though I'm really not sure how useful these will be in their present state. I apologise again for slacking on this ; work commitments have been taking up too much time recently. Moving forward, one of the things I was going to propose actually was a more functional kernel config similar to how slackware provides them ; a "normal" kernel and a "huge" kernel with lots more features enabled, which could contain support for many other things which are not enabled by default, such as LVM device mapper, crypt-targets, vlan, ipv6, etc. Of course I do appreciate the settings configured in the normal config, it's just that they no longer suit my own personal needs now, and the OpenVZ kernel can occasionally be a pain to successfully compile. Regards, Simon.
