fedora 9 ipv6

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 ???

First you must add blacklist ipv6 to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. Then you must edit /etc/sysconfig/network to include NETWORKING_IPV6=no. Lastly add 'IPV6INIT=no' to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.

Don't forget to deactivate ip6tables before rebooting.
