Rajko,

Seems to be the same problem I got (Bug 463015 - Able to ping unable to
connect)

A couple of points:

1. disabling ipv6 did not allow me to use evolution, the rest was OK. I
just got Wireshark after you mention it. Now I have to figure it out
before I can use it and figure out what's happening with evolution.

Whatever is going on look in Evolution.
Some enterprize networks are internally IPv6, so it should be OK that
Evolution defaults to IPv6, but as it is not used exclusively there, it
should not fail if there is no IPv6. That should be a bug.

The minimal solution would be to have manual switch hidden somewhere in
configuration. Better solution would be to have automatic switch, though it
can be located in first configuration after installation, which would help
Evolution to start faster by skipping check for environment changes.

2. Adding the DNS servers works while you do not use the network
manager. If I enable the networkmanager the DNS server is not written to
the resolv.conf. I quess I can use ifup but it was better to go back
to 11 in my TP x61.

I can imagine how complex piece of software is that and I'm not surprised to
see problems. You can't cover every possible network configuration.

Though, I would file bug report. If it is closed as invalid, then you know
that you case is not covered, at least not yet.

3. This is not a problem unique to opensuse 11.1. When fedora 10 came
out I tested it and I had a very similar problem. At the time I solved
there disabling ipv6.

Avahi too?

4. "It seems something wrong with IPv6 in Avahi" it looks like you are
in the correct track. I have been reading about Avahi but until you
mentioned it I have no clue ;-)

So far, only programs that use Avahi, and users of those programs have a
problem ;-)

My problem is that I don't want to become Avahi insider, but the other choice
is to wait for Godot ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waiting_for_Godot ).

When SUSE crew comes from holidays your report
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=463015
will be one in the pile. Taking that most of the users don't complain it can
be some time before it get attention.
