comment General Linux support for IPv6 ready?
As I just mentioned in another question, stop using ifconfig, it is obsolete. The correct command is ip addr show or simply ip a.

comment Inability to use IPv4-mapped IPv6 on debian squeeze
@Mike: 192.168.13.236 is an IPv4 address. It doesn't make sense to add it to the IPv6 stack, not even by changing it to a IPv4-mapped IPv6 address like you are trying to.

comment Inability to use IPv4-mapped IPv6 on debian squeeze
It depends, perhaps I'm confused by your distinction between "dual-stack ipv6" and "ipv4 address".

comment Inability to use IPv4-mapped IPv6 on debian squeeze
@Mike, dual-stack means that the system supports both IPv4 and IPv6, each one on its own stack. ip -4 a will show you the IPv4 one, ip -6 a will show you the IPv6 one. Simply ip a will show both, plus MAC addresses.

comment Inability to use IPv4-mapped IPv6 on debian squeeze
in my answer. Ifconfig was last updated ten years ago; it uses the obsolete ioctl() interface instead of the new netlink and thus doesn't support anything past Linux 2.2. It is an abomination that distros still include it. Also, discussion, Debian bug, etc.

comment Why does US International Keyboard break Alt_R
It is not a bug, neither in GNOME, nor in Xorg. This is intended behavior. Right Alt is AltGr, not the same as the left Alt. It just so happens that U.S. English has no use for AltGr, so if it is the only keyboard layout loaded, it is mapped to the same modifier as left Alt, for compatibility with really old systems.

comment Why does US International Keyboard break Alt_R
@deuberger: Yes, it is likely that simply adding the layout as available will revert the right Alt key to its original meaning. The right-Alt-same-as-left-Alt is an exception that only makes sense if only U.S. English is used (and that is for backwards compatibility). If you add other layouts, it implies that you will use them. The modifier mapping and keyboard layout are achieved in different layers inside the xkb code.
