Description of problem:
Trying to install on a Dell Inspiron 4150 in a docking station. The
dock's ethernet port is recognized as eth1. The installer asks which
interface I wish to use, but regardless of choice trys to obtain a
dhcp address on eth0 only and fails (since it is not plugged in).
I'm giving install parameters like:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get machine with two ethernet ports.
2. Only connect eth1
3. Try install with ks=nfs:<server>:<dir>
Actual Results: Install fails attempting to obtain dhcp address for eth0.
Expected Results: Install should use eth1.
Sorry, problem was caused by a line in the kickstart config file:
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
Removing the "--device eth0" appears to have cleared it up.
