That looks fine - your machine is 1.33, your router is 1.1. It
sounds like "Network is unreachable" is caused by your "zypper

use the IPv6 address of "". Do you still
get this error?

What does "host" say? On a systems with no
IPv6 connectivity, you ought to see the IPv4 address listed

Thanks Per. The results now are:
user@linux:~> host has address has IPv6 address 2001:67c:2178:8::13
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
The last line is a little odd, not sure where that would be from.
Otherwise fine.

user@linux:~> ping6
PING 56 data bytes
From fe80::1 icmp_seq=1 Destination unreachable: No route
Hmm, let us see your network config, please: "ip addr"
It is odd that you should have an IPv6 address (fe80::1) saying "no
route". Judging by your "ip addr" output, you only have link-local
addresses, but I wonder if you might have an IPv6 route, default
fe80::1. What does "ip -6 route show" say?

fe80::/64 dev eth0 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
default via fe80::1 dev eth0 proto static metric 100 pref medium

Okay, there is your problem. When zypper tries to
access "", it will attempt to use IPv6, because
you appear to have IPv6 connectivity. When the first packet is routed
to fe80::1, it is returned with "Network is unreachable" because your
router doesn't actually have any IPv6 connectivity.
It's probably easily fixed by changing to dhcp4 only for your network
interfaces. This is done with YaST.

Thanks Per. I went to Yast > Network Config > General options. There I
unchecheked the enable Ipv6 and then as instructed by Yast rebooted. But it had NO
effect. Problem is unchanged. It's really puzzling. Gustav.

Shorted from above:

Hmm, have you ever heard of "/etc/gai.conf" ? Nifty file to configure
just HOW that damn glibc orders the get-address-info stuff.

Esp. a line of:
precedence ::ffff:0:0/96 100
helps in such troubles. Most times it is already there, but commented out.

May need a reboot, but most often not.
