kickstart install from hd fails at the end, when configuring network interface
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
A kickstart from a local ext3 filesystem that should set up a network
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp --hostname livre
throws an exception and offers to start the debugger. The same
kickstart file works for an NFS install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-9.91-6 (not entirely sure about this; it was the anaconda in
rawhide before 9.91-7)
What's the exception?
Erhm... I thought I'd added more info about the exception to the bug
report. Unfortunately, I've already thrown away my notes :-( IIRC,
the problem was that device == "eth0" had klass == None. I *think*
this was in pumpNetDevice, but I don't think I even took note of that :-(
If I had to guess, I'd say that, since it was doing a kickstart from
hd, it didn't bring up the network modules, so when it attempted to
figure out what module it needed to config the device, it didn't have
the info. But this would be a very wild guess :-)
Okay, I think I fixed this in CVS then.
