Description of problem:
I am unable to do a network install using the boot.iso in rawhide.
Anaconda thinks all my ethernet devices are named 'eth' (no numbers)
and so fails to bring up the device. Removing all but one card didn't
All of the cards use the tlan driver, and show up on virtual terminal
4 with proper name(eth0, eth1, eth2) when the driver is loaded. When
trying to bring up the interface, vt4 says:
<7>request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- eth. error = -16
and vt3 says:
* pump told us: SIOCSIFADDR: No such device.
I am unable to find a version number for Anaconda within the minimal
boot-floppish environment, so this is what I downloaded directly from
RedHat early in the morning on Feb 6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with boot.iso. commandline is "linux askmethod vnc"
2. attempt an ftp or http install
3. network setup fails.
Have you run a 2.6 kernel on this box otherwise? If so, can you get
the output of kudzu -p -c NETWORK while running in 2.6?
This box has been running 2.6(-test) kernels for about 6 months with
no problems. It has a working install of rawhide (upgraded from FC1
with yum), running kernel-2.6.1-1.65smp:
[root@ctesiphon root]# kudzu -p -c NETWORK
desc: "Compaq|Netelligent 10/100"
Should be fixed with test2 and later
*nods* This is working for me now. Thanks! I'll close this.
