Description Orion Poplawski 2007-10-19 18:27:55 EDT
Description of problem:

anaconda will always try to use eth0.  have been using ksdevice=bootif for a
while, but that doesn't work.  Neither does ksdevice=eth1.  Neither does not
specifying a device and selecting eth1 from the menu - it still uses eth0!

Doing ks=nfs:saga:/export/data1/ks/rawhide-second.cfg


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
11.3.0.42
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2007-10-22 13:49:22 EDT
Please try again with 11.3.0.44 or later as some work has gone on here recently.
Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2007-10-23 13:29:05 EDT
Still the same with 11.3.0.44.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-10-24 15:01:39 EDT
Can you attach your kickstart file and /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report? 
Are you booting from the network or from media?  How are you determining that
eth0 is always the interface being used?
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2007-10-24 15:52:21 EDT
Okay, this was my bad.  Seems like F7 required a "--device" arg to network?  I
had ended up doing:

network --proto=dhcp --device=eth0

in my kickstart.  Removing --device allowed it to work again.

Sorry for the false report.
