Re: [orca-list] OT, slow IP connection

It is more likely to be the choice of Ubuntu package server.

The default are the US servers, so if you dont live in the US, you most 
likely wish to modify your /etc/apt/sources.list to reflect this.

for example I live in the UK, and the first line of my 
/etc/apt/sources.list reads as follows:
deb feisty main restricted

note the gb after the http://
yours would probably be http://us

if you still wish to disable IPV6 then follow these steps:

1. sudo nano -w /etc/modprobe.d/aliases (or your preferred text editor)
2. Find the line: alias net-pf-10 ipv6
3. Edit this to: alias net-pf-10 off
4. Save the file and reboot

Hope this helps

Hi All,
I am running an update, and the connection is painfully slow, in my Ubuntu 
I read on the web that it is the TCP-stack trying IPv6, when there is no IP6 
connection available.
Will my update change this?
