Description Bill Nottingham 2007-10-12 00:00:29 EDT
Description of problem:

That's not valid. What are you intending by such a configuration?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

anaconda-11.3.0.38-1
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-12 00:01:39 EDT
Poking at the anaconda source, I see:

loader.c:648:        loaderData->ipv6 = strdup("dhcp");
loader.c:1272:                        loaderData->ipv6 = strdup("dhcpv6");

Presumably that's the source, although one of those lines probably needs fixed.

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2007-10-23 17:05:19 EDT
The internal Network object in anaconda does not directly map down to ifcfg-*
settings.  At one point it did, so I added support to write out correct IPV6
values based on what we collected from the user.
