Hi, Ruediger Meier

I am testing the bug, but I knew a little about rcnetwork and ipv6.
So how did you discovered the bug? and what steps to reproduce it?

(In reply to comment #0)
Hi,

rcnetwork start returns success when ipv6 adresses are still in tentative mode
(still unusable).

This causes later init scripts to fail if they are starting servers which want
to listen to specific configured IPs.
(In my case named does not to start on boot.)


Workaround:
setting ip CONFFLAG nodad for such important IPs
or disabling dad system wide (sysctl)
or just add "sleep 5" at the end of rcnetwork start

Currently Ive added that sleep to my network init script.
Better solution would be to wait for ip address state permanent (success) or
dadfailed (error).
