Look, if I ask my default server I get:

cer@Telcontar:~> host download.opensuse.org
download.opensuse.org has address 195.135.221.134
download.opensuse.org has IPv6 address 2001:67c:2178:8::13
cer@Telcontar:~>


If I ask google, I get:

cer@Telcontar:~> host download.opensuse.org 8.8.8.8
Using domain server:
Name: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53
Aliases:

download.opensuse.org has address 195.135.221.134
download.opensuse.org has IPv6 address 2001:67c:2178:8::13
cer@Telcontar:~>


The answer is the same, in both cases I get the IPv6 address - and my
network is not IPv6 capable. I still do not see how using the google dns
can help me. I want an answer that does not include that IPv6 address in
the response, because if I get it, YaST tries it when IPv4 fails. I need
yast to fail when the IPv4 address fails.
