    ipv6 only. also appears to be fixed. so remember, as with all kernel
    upgrades, get the major version and apply current patch to it to save on
    bandwidth should another upgrade be required before the major number
    increases.

    nice to know there was a 0-day fix.

    With his 36 years experience on computing, he *knows* that Linux is just a
    script kiddie OS for a tiny minority of computer users.

  9. And in your 6 years of life, all you've learnt to do is troll.
    Now go away & play with your Fischer-Price toy OS.
