Re: [alpine-user] Alpine Linux is second class member in an IPv6 network
it looks like you are right and the autoconf isn't disabled. Linux
kernel autoconf is tricky and if the script (of which I have no
knowledge right now) waits for something, it would be interesting
to check what that is. I am more into userspace implementations like
dhcpcd, libndp/NetworkManager and the like.
