live-boot uses ipconfig from klibc-utils to configure the network for

unless there's a valid alternative to use, instead of ipconfig from
klibc-utils, this isn't a bug in live-boot - live-boot merely is
affected by the deficiency of klibcs ipconfig. since you've already
reported this as #627164 against klibc-utils, i'm closing this one.

Regards,
Daniel

However, this still has to be addressed in live-boot once an alternative
tool is available or ipconfig supports IPv6.

Thanks

right, but there's no point in having a bug upen with 'whatever there 
will be in future, do update your package for it'. this is somewhat 
similar to like having a bug saying 'please make sure that live-boot 
boots from whatever the successor of usb will be'.

This is way different. There is even no proposal for USB replacement but
IPv6 is here right now, and some people might experience real issues
trying to netboot from an IPv6 address.

This report states that it is not supported and points to the root of
the issue - use of ipconfig that is not IPv6 capable.

Thanks

Michal
