freenet6 on Fedora 7

Filed under: Hacking — Tags: , , — abbe @ 0257

4-5 days ago, I’ve packaged go6‘s IPv6 tunnelling client for Fedora 7. Due to bug# 374521, I’m not able to boot into Fedora 8 so no Fedora 8 stuff here. So for Fedora 8 rpmbuild a rpm yourself. I’ve packaged only for AMD64 architecture, as I exclusively use AMD64 architecture. For other architectures, rpmbuild a rpm yourself :).

freenet6-5.1b4-2fc7.x86_64.rpmFreenet6 client rpm (AMD64) – md5sum: 461aec7068293feef71e6bc12284c60894 KiB
freenet6-5.1b4-2fc7.src.rpmFreenet6 client srpmmd5sum: 590548baa4a29b9f14dc407d01ea1d631.8 MiB

All of the above downloads are signed with GPG key id: 0x10F28410762E5E74. You don’t require any root access to build RPMs and there’re only two dependencies, namely gcc and kernel-headers. After installing, it’ll install a service named freenet6, which is on by default. Without any changes to default configuration, it’ll try to create an anonymous tunnel to IPv6. The IPv6 address allocated to the tunnel will be dynamic. So if you prefer static IPv6 address register for an account. And enter the details in /etc/freenet6/gw6c.conf. There are no. of configuration options available like running in router mode (i.e. you’ll be delegated a /64 or /48 prefix instead of default /128, which will be advertised into your network using radvd (you’ll require radvd package), so your other IPv6 devices in the network, can stateless autoconfigure themselves), setting reverse delegation DNS servers, etc.

Known Issues. The only issues I’ve found is with SELinux AVC denials, which is due to no policy being written for the daemon. You don’t need to disable SELinux in order to run this. Writing a policy for it is not difficult, I would’ve written if I was running in Fedora 8. BtW, the version of software which is packaged is in BETA. Anyways, happy IPv6ing…;)
