For opensuse 13.1, I used NetworkManager so that I could turn on privacy extensions (provides a somewhat random temporary IPv6 address).
With opensuse 13.2 (using wicked), this has been automatic. I did not have to do anything. Similarly, with Tumbleweed, this has been automatic.
But now, since recent updates, it is not working anymore. I am not getting that temporary address.
(a) What changed? (b) What magic incantation is needed to get it working again?
I experienced similar with 13.1. It worked with earlier versions, but not now. Per Jensen provided a fix. I added the following to my /etc/init.d/afterlocal file:
ifdown eth0 sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.eth0.use_tempaddr=2 ifup eth0
I'm not sure if this issue is a bug or "feature". ;-)
