Why is that?
If using IPv6 servers breaks my setup because I have
no IPv6 internet,
how setting a nameserver that gives me IPv6 addresses can help me?
What I need is *no* IPv6 name resolving.
Maybe doing what I do will satisfy you:
... ipv4only=1 ...
I have no idea whether that's a SUSE-only option.
When I don't forget, I also strip all ipv6 lines from /etc/hosts.
Other than seeing "...eth0: no IPv6 routers present" during boot and in the
menu.lst entries, I rarely see evidence of existence of IPv6.
Maybe setting network.dns.disableIPv6 = true in Firefox would be worth a try.
Also check that network.http.fast-fallback-to-IPv4 isn't false.
