RE: [Xen-devel] xen0=2.6.7 network problem in xenU (SOLVED)

I probably should clarify, I can't get xenU to talk on the network in any way (it listens but doesn't talk) when xen0 has the ipv6 module loaded.
simply having the ipv6 module there in dom0 seems to break things

Our netfront/netback drivers should be transparent to the actual
protocol that you're running over them. 

We've never tested them with ipv6, but I'd be kinda surprised if
they were at fault.

I wander if this is some sort of ipv6 interaction with either the
bridge or ebtables code? I'd wager that they haven't been well
tested with ipv6.
> Can someone please test a 2.6.7-xen0 kernel with ipv6 loaded and then a 2.6.7-xenU kernel in another domain and see if they can get any network traffic?

Is it just the act of having the module installed that break
things, or do you need to configure one of the two domains with
an ipv6 interface address?
