Bug#701884: kfreebsd: unknown method 'inet6 auto'

Package: ifupdown
Version: 0.7.5
Severity: important
Tags: d-i ipv6
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Control: reassign -1 ifupdown,netcfg


If IPv6 SLAAC is used by the installer, netcfg will create an invalid
/e/n/i file on kfreebsd.  This means even the loopback interface will
not come up on boot:

# ifup -v br0
/etc/network/interfaces:12: unknown method
ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"

/etc/network/interfaces :
>  1    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
>  2    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
>  3    
>  4    # The loopback network interface
>  5    auto lo0
>  6    iface lo0 inet loopback
>  7    
>  8    # The primary network interface
>  9    auto vr0
> 10    iface vr0 inet dhcp
> 11    # This is an autoconfigured IPv6 interface
> 12    iface vr0 inet6 auto

The 'inet6 auto' method is not implemented for kfreebsd.  There is only
an 'inet6 dhcp' (which implements stateful DHCPv6).  The other methods
(static, manual) are not really suitable for SLAAC.
