Bug Description

Binary package hint: mtr

I'm using a custom kernel with ipv6 disabled and mtr complains about it.

There's a fix for it

Thank you

The app seems to work just fine apart from this.

Hi, do you have ipv6 enabled?

No. I did this post-install ..

echo blacklist ipv6 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
sed -ie /NETWORKING_IPV6=/s/yes/no/ /etc/sysconfig/network
echo NETWORKING_IPV6=no >> /etc/sysconfig/network
/sbin/chkconfig ip6tables off

Ok, finally I managed to have functional rawhide. The following patch is tested and it fixes the problem for me.
