i am using fedora 9, i have problems with pidgin, yum,...
for example yum gives the following message when i am trying to get a package installed
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (110, 'Connection timed out')>
when i was using previous versions of fedora, I used to disable ipv6 by following some steps, one of these steps was to write the following lines in /etc/modprobe.conf
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
but this file is not found in fedora 9, i have created the file myself, then added the lines and restarted the network service but it didn't work.
I guess that there is something changed about network configuration in fedora 9.
can you tell me how to disable ipv6 in fedora 9 ???
