Description Dan St.Andre' 1999-12-22 16:47:40 UTC
The ERROR Report: The last entry in the traceback says File .../todo.py line 1011 in writeNetworkConfig f=open(self.instPath + "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-" + device, "w") IOError [errno 2] no such file or directory: '/mnt/sysimage/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0' Analysis: Sure enough, the entire folder ../network-scripts/ is missing from the /mnt/sysimage/etc/sysconfig folder. This was a CUSTOM install onto two drives of 1024 Mb and 850 Mb. Discussion: Since I have limited disk space that is the install target, my first thought was free space. However, I used the ALT-F2 shell and checked "df -k". I had lots of space on all partitions. Also, because of the limited disk space, I had "picked" my way through the features. On first attempt, I was over size by roughly 30Mb. I used the [back] buttons and then went through individual package selection targeting games, desktop art, wallpaper, font collections, sound files and the like. I do not recall removing any network related packages. On my next attempt, I was warned that I removed QQQ that had dependency on TTT. I used [back] again and removed the requesting offender rather that install the extra package. Again, I do not recall removing any network related packages.

This issue is resolved in the latest beta installer.

Without knowing the packages which you deselected, I would have to say that this was the result of something "deselecting" the initscripts package, which is the package that writes the files in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory. We have tightened up the base package selection in the latest release so that those packages get installed under all circumstances and there is no way to deselect these packages.
