Depending on which distribution you have installed but in general you should blacklist loading IPv6 module.

Usually in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file you need to add a line with "ipv6" and reboot the system.

Depending on you distribution as was mention you can disable the IPv6 loading in the networking part.
Often during install most when configuring networking prompt whether IPv6 should or should not be activated.
