6.2.3.3 Using IPv6 During the Installation
By default you can only assign IPv4 network addresses to your machine. To enable IPv6 during installation, enter one of the following parameters at the boot prompt:
ipv6=1 (accept IPv4 and IPv6)
ipv6only=1 (accept IPv6 only).

Douglas DeMaio,

The link (
http://docserv.suse.de/documents/SLES12-SP1/SLES-deployment/single-html/#sec.i.yast2.start.parameters.ipv6 ) You posted SLES 12 SP1 is broken, I found this link, more do not talk about support, IPv6-only:
http://www.novell.com/linux/releasenotes/x86_64/SUSE-SLES/12-SP1/ My suggestion is that you, or someone, which is part of the development team, SUSE Linux or openSUSE Linux. Add, support for IPv6-only, openSUSE Linux Leap 42.1, this Wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_IPv6_support_in_operating_systems These are the settings, IPv6-only, this Wikipedia page: Claimed IPv6-ready, Installed by Default, DHCPv6, ND RDNSS.

This Wikipedia page is very important because it serves as a reference to the IPv6-only network deployment.

Because if this Wikipedia page, is added, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Linux, too, it should be added, SUSE Linux Enterprise and openSUSE Linux.

Thank you!

Driva Linux.

Hi Driva Linux

if the ipv6only option doesn't work, it's better to open a bugreport and pursue it that way.

Driva Linux,

fyi, I have tested ipv6only=1 today and it works very well, so why don't you go ahead and amend that wikipedia page.

Per Jessen,

I can not edit Wikipedia, and add: openSUSE Linux Leap 42.1 Without any reference, either with the approval in IPv6 Ready Logo Program Approved List - Phase-2:
https://www.ipv6ready.org/db/index.php/public/ Or by documentation provided by the openSUSE Linux. And the ideal is that the openSUSE Linux Leap 42.1, meets all the specifications, Wikipedia, for the implementation of a network that supports IPv6-only: Claimed IPv6-ready, Installed by Default, DHCPv6, ND RDNSS :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_IPv6_support_in_operating_systems

Thank you!

Per Jessen,

Now, I saw that someone of SUSE Linux development team, or openSUSE Linux, updated the Wikipedia page. Thank you for responding to my request:

Thank you!
