Kernel Panic while configuring IPv6
It seems that IPv6 is one of those other areas where Leopard does not really shine. I tried to configure the ‘gif0’ network interface to setup a 6-in-4 tunnel to an IPv6 tunnel broker and I was greeted with a kernel panic.
Here is the script that I executed:
ifconfig gif0 tunnel 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 ifconfig gif0 up ifconfig gif0 inet6 some::ip::v6::address::1 prefixlen 128 alias route add -inet6 some::ip::v6::address::1 -prefixlen some::ip::v6::address::2 route add -inet6 default some::ip::v6::address::1
Nothing special. Just basic stuff that should never ever result in a kernel panic.
Bye bye solid networking stack. Lame.
