Created attachment 425125 [details]
The traceback.

Description of problem:

If a network device activated in stage 1 is missing ipv4 address, anaconda fails with traceback in stage 2.

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

anaconda-13.21.50-1

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with stage2= boot parameter pointing to ipv6 address (e.g. stage2=http://[2001:aaaa::1]/install.img)
2. In stage 1, when asked to configure network device, uncheck "Enable IPV4 support". I used ipv6 predefined setting "Automatic Neigbor Discovery", having radvd on the link.
3. In stage 2, before network configuration screen there is the traceback.
  
Actual results:

Traceback attached.

Expected results:

No traceback.
