Description Ossama Khayat 2004-05-08 16:56:05 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040505

Description of problem:
Trying to install FC2T3, using VNC, passing 'linux vnc
vncpassword=password', the system boots OK untill I reach the IP
address step. If I choose to use DHCP, it just won't work (though I'm
running other PC normally using DHCP). If I try to assign a static IP,
again it trys to look for a domain and host name (as it says) then
gets me back to the IP configuration screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 1'st cd and pass 'linux vnc' or 'linux vnc vncpassword=whatever'.
2. Choose language and other stuff untill you reach the IP
configuration screen.
3. Try to use DHCP or set your own ip information.

Actual Results:  No matter what, it will still try to look for
domain/host name and gets back to the config screen.

Expected Results:  It should just continue normally using the assigned
IP and getting a new one from DHCP.
