I'm trying (as a lab exercise) to set an interface to activate only with
SLAAC IPv6 address. No IPv4, no static, no dhcp. Problem is I can't find
a configuration that makes the interface to startup without static or
dynamic (dhcp) configurations.
What I've tried is something like
auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet6 dhcp
instead of dhcp, I´ve tried dhcp6, dhcpv6, slaac, but to no avail. Does
somebody know how to make this work?
I know the network is working. If I force the interface up with
'ifconfig eth0 up', the interface does start, and it gets the IPv6
address via slaac after a couple of seconds. But I can't find out what
to put in the interfaces file to make it start automatically, without
having any IPv4 address.

1. Do not hijack threads.
2. Use the manual method.
iface foo inet manual
up ip link set dev foo up
down ip link set dev foo down
