Doing my first baby steps with IPv6, I've just now come across the

with YaST, but apparently it's no longer necessary due to
the "Neighbor Discovery Protocol":"Router Solicitation"?

If you get an ipv6 address from your ISP it might not be needed.

Yes, I have an IPv6 network that was allocated by my ISP. I set up a
default route like this: "ip -6 add default dev ppp0" - it looks like
I would otherwise have to get the box to issue an
ICMPV6:Router_Solicitation, but how do I do that?

I was also interested in local systems though - they would all go
through the gateway machine, but unless I configure a permanent default
ipv6 route, I don't see how they would get it.
