I can't seem to make IPv6 work on a linux (ubuntu 8.10) host with host interface networking. The same works fine on a windows vista host.
As soon as I modprobe ipv6 I get : eth0: duplicate address detected!
Something like rdisc6 eth0 gives me the following :
Soliciting ff02::2 (ff02::2) on eth0...
Sending ICMPv6 packet: cannot assign requested address
The installed virtualbox version is the 2.1.0-41146_Ubuntu_intrepid package from the virtualbox.org apt repository.
