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):
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
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.
Sorry, the network cable was unplugged :|
