Description Orion Poplawski 2007-02-22 17:15:31 UTC
Doing a PXE/kickstart/NFS install of rawhide from 20070222.  The loopback device
is not configured.  This prevents me from mounting an nfs directory in %post
because the mount.nfs command tries to contact the local portmap server via the
loopback address.

David - looks like lo is configured, but not brought up.  Similar to other
issues we've had with regular interfaces.

Orion - for now you should be able to work around this with a quick "ifconfig lo
up" at the beginning of your %post script.

Yeah, the netlink API is not friendly past kernel 2.6.17.  Rewrote
initLoopback() to use ioctl() and it's working now.
