In light of World IPv6 day, the Gentoo Linux Infrastructure team would like to announce new IPv6-availability of several services, and list the existing IPv6 services. Every service listed below is running a dual-stack native IPv4/IPv6 service, no tunnels.

The new services available via IPv6 are:

The existing services available via IPv6 are:

  • CVS/SVN/Git services for developers
  • http://sources.gentoo.org/
  • rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/ - our primary rsync rotation
  • rsync://${CC}.rsync.gentoo.org - our regional community rsync rotations
  • A number of our mirrors

All of our IPv6 services will remain online after today, unless serious IPv6 problems (esp. regarding routing) are encountered.

Gentoo would like to extend thanks to all our sponsors & mirrors who have provided IPv6 service, and the servers to make use of it!

I've been prodding at the concept of the new network script in OpenRC-0.5, and I'm at a loss to try and see why Roy has decided to toss the old network config system away. The new system doesn't have a lot of capabilities, and most significantly totally loses the ability to restart a single interface without affecting the rest of the system. If it's just for a rewrite, then I'm not too worried, but unless all the functionality is still there, I'm worried we are going to move backwards with it.

At the same time, I don't think many people are aware of how powerful the "old" network configuration mechanism is. The net.examples file is only the start, once you start mixing in the pre/post calls, there's a lot of power. It's capable of some feats that I don't see used even in certain parts of the Gentoo documentation[1]. I've put together some of my gems of conf.d/net, and if you have some, I'd love to hear them. Leave a comment or email me the scripts, along with a description.

Configurations available
  • Easy to maintain HE.net (Hurricane Electric) IPv6 tunnels - Download
  • Running two ISPs at home (basic multi-homing) - Download
  • "Enterprise" multi-homing setup, with 4 paths to the Internet - Download
Hosting

I've also started a bit of storage in my Gentoo webspace for these collected works of network configuration, with a bit more documentation.

Notes
  1. The Gentoo docs have this for IPv6: Gentoo IPv6 Router Guide, Tunnel Configuration. You could bring it up manually, or you could just take the IPv6 config above and use it straight with your variables filled in. Volunteers welcome to help merge that config into the Gentoo IPv6 documentation.
