1 My ~amd64 machine updated yesterday to NM-1.0.0 and this morning I noticed the bad
2 behavior described here:
6 The fix described there by ermo worked for me, but it took me a while to figure out
7 how to get it done.
9 The easy way is to right-click on the NetworkManager panel applet and choose the
10 Edit Connections item to edit your wireless connection. In the editor window click
11 on 'IPv6 Settings'. There is a drop-down menu labeled 'Method'. Click on 'Link-
12 Local Only' and then Save.
14 I'd never have figured this out on my own, so the Arch nerds bailed me out once
15 again :)
18 (BTW, my recent posts via gmane have been bouncing because of the recent change in
19 the gentoo mailing-list email address. I hope the gmane guys will have it fixed
20 soon. We'll see if this post makes it...)
