IPv6 support in piCore
« on: April 21, 2013, 07:58:21 AM »
Hi all,

I installed latest piCore image and I really like it. Nice work!

Now I wanted to enable IPv6 support. Any hints how I could get it up and running?

Cheers,
Patrick

IPv6 must be enabled by default. Did you try it?

Hi Markus,

I tried "ifconfig -a" not showing a Link-Local IPv6-Address and netstat -a gives me missing entries for tcp6, udp6 and raw6 in /proc/net.

On my host I tried a broadcast ping6, but got no response from my Raspberry. Do I need to install a special package?

Thanks,
Patrick

P.S.: I tried to include the output messages, but was not allowed to: "Sorry, you are not allowed to post external links."

Hi bmarkus
Is it possible that paco might need a PI version of  ipv6-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz  for IP6 support?

I just checked kernel config and there are ipv6 modules. I will add them to the repo.

To have ipv6 support install ipv6-modules-3.2.27.tcz or ipv6-modules-3.6.11-piCore.tcz from the repo depending on your kernel. Let me know the result.

Thanks a lot! Works!

I just added "modprobe ipv6" to "/opt/bootlocal.sh" and the RaspPi anwsers to
Code: [Select]
ping6 -w 1 -i 2 ff02::1%eth0.

Cheers,
Patrick
