Need to change Fedora Linux's IPv6 stack for NDP DAD timer changes.

How to locate the Fedora's IPv6 and IPv4 stack in Fedora distribution dvd/site so that, we can recompile and generate new stack ?

To change the NDP DAD timing, use sysctl. The sysctl-key to look at is net.ipv6.neigh.<if>.retrans_time_ms.

"Fedora" doesn't have an IPv4/IPv6 stack. "Fedora" is a distribution -- a collection of tools and utilities. Fedora is built around "Linux", which does have a network stack. You can find the source code to Linux at kernel.org, where you can download everything as a tarball, or clone the git repository at git.kernel.org. The Kernel Hacker's Guide to Git has some useful information on getting started if you opt for this method.

This doesn't really answer the question, does it? – countermode Aug 12 '14 at 12:16
