[alpine-devel] ipv6 network configuration problems

Hi there all !

It's been a long time!

Having downloaded the latest ISO of alpine (
alpine-extended-3.4.5-x86.iso )

I came across this

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
   bond-slaves eth2 eth3 eth4
   bond_mode 802.3ad

auto bond0.13
iface bond0.13 inet static
   address 62.xx.xx.xx

iface bond0.13 inet6 static
    address 2001:xxxxx
    netmask 64
    gateway 2001:xxxxx

Will always give me

vconfig: ioctl error for add: File exists
at boot time

then trying to ifdown bond0.13 from command line will complain about
bond0.13 not being configured

needless to say ... when I've tried the same with vlan13 Naming

problems were almost the same

auto vlan13
iface vlan13 inet static
address 62.xx.xx.xx
vlan-raw-device bond0

iface vlan13 inet6 static
address 2001:470:ffff:ff::2
netmask 64
gateway 2001:470:ffff:ff::1
pre-up echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/vlan13/accept_ra

ifup vlan13 will give

run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/vlan: exit status 1

and the ipv4 part being configured and ipv6 not, leaving the state of
vlan13 all messed up .. :(

Your ideas will be appreciated !
