I made a clean install of Karmic Koala and suddenly found out that it's impossible to disable ipv6 so internet is reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeallllllyyyyyyyyyyyy slow . First of all, I looked up in the whole Ubuntu related sites for solutions, besides the one for Firefox (in about:config, Oh...that made the trick but only for firefox!) and no one seems to be working (for example the "ipv6.disable=1" on /boot/grub/grub.cfg isn't working)
The problem is that I have extremely long delays with internet related commands such as ping, apt-get update, or whatever you can imagine
I have the same problem in old versions of ubuntu, but using the forums i was able to turn off ipv6 support (for example modifying /etc/modprobe/aliases)... Now I can't figure out what to do Is there any way to disable ipv6 or I will have to reinstall Jaunty and wait for Karmic's final release to see if there where any solution to my problem?
I'm an owner of HP Compaq 6720s and these are the related specifications:
