IPv6 autoconfig not working on new pinebook
Not sure if this is the right place for this but I'll try.

I got my new 1080p 11.6" pinebook yesterday, I'm typing this post on it. Fun.

It still has the OS it shipped with (don't even know what it's called).

IPv6 autoconfig is not working. I don't get a global address. It works on my Mac on the same networks (meaning I get a global address on it). I'm more of a BSD guy than Linux, so I'm probably missing something.

I wiresharked the router solicitation and advertisement. The solicitation is not the same as the Mac and I'm not sure if that matters. The advertisement from the router is the same one the Mac uses successfully though.

IPv6 does work, I can ping the link local address on other systems. Just no global address so I can get to the internet with IPv6.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction?

Sadly I am not the right person to address your issue (someone with answers will likely show up soon), just here to comment that all major *BSDs are available for the Pinebook, since you mentioned you're more of a BSD guy. Most recant NetBSD can be found here.

Yeah there's some chatter on the NetBSD mailing list about the latest 1080p pinebook. I might try it on a microsd at some point.

I tried another thing. I used the GUI network configuration tool to add a static IPv6 address and it never showed up if I did ip a.

Something seems broken or not set to accept global addresses. Link local still works.

I did the same, and nothing showed up so I did:

ip -6 ro

and my ipv6 address shows up but it isn't usable. I'm kinda stumped why it doesn't work properly though, usually it just works.
I see my 2 /64 prefixes which are coming from router advertisements, but not actual addresses.
