Re: slowly or no configured connection usage

switched to ignoring interface configurations that have only an IPv6LL

potentially backport that to 0.9.10, or at least make the patch

can you show me the affected code-lines?  then I could wrapup the patch very

Hi Ingo,

the commit which adds this behavior is:

At a quick glance, it shouldn't be too difficult to backport it to
0.9.10; the main difference is that 0.9.10 doesn't have
nm-config-data.c; therefore you should add the 'assume_ipv6ll_only'
variable and related code to nm-config.c instead.
