    When no ipv6 routers are present, its automatically disabled and therefore this is not necessary anymore, also you can block ipv6 via firewall.

    Thats right, if one opens up network tools in Ubuntu, they will find ipv6 with an ignore tab.

    In Fedora 13 I edited the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file and added the following entries:
    #blacklist ipv6
    blacklist ipv6

    Reboot and then check with:
    ip a | grep inet6

    no output means ipv6 is successfully blocked
