Description of problem:
If i boot from images/boot.iso cd or using askmethod from normal cd
and choose network install, it pops message, that there is no
available network device to perform this kind of istallation. The
driver is loaded so using ifconfig on second console i can manually
setup eth0 and it works.
I have tryed 2 motherboards (Jetway P4MDPT and Asus A7V8X-X, both VIA
KT400 based boards with integrated via network device) with same result.
My guess is that there is some kind of race condition problem related
to this driver(via-rhine). It looks like Anaconda checks available
networks devices before via-rhine driver make one available.
As a side note, on second console pump doesn't work on those devices
too. It ends with message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pump", line 30, in ?
ns = isys.pumpNetDevice(iface, None)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 485, in pumpNetDevice
return _isys.pumpnetdevice(device, klass)
TypeError: argument 2 must be string, not None
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try network install FC2-test3 using via-rhine based nic
Same problem for me, on a acer aspire 1304, with FC2T2 and FC2T3.
The via-rhine driver seems to be loaded, but anaconda ask for a
network driver, and I can't install FC2 (FC1 is ok).
I didn't check the anaconda log, cause I'm new to Fedora Core.
Me too, on FC-devel from 2004-05-04. eth0 seems to be loaded, but
anaconda somehow doesn't see that. :( (This is a Via C3M266 (I think)
motherboard, CLE266 chipset.)
