Description of problem:
I use kickstart to set up multiple FC2 machines.
The machines are set up initially with DHCP, and I want to
specify the correct static IP address during the firstboot
in the kickstart file.
However, when firstboot starts, I get an error in
/usr/share/firstboot/modules/networking.py because the file
/etc/modules.conf is missing.
Shouldn't this be changed into /etc/modprobe.conf ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kickstart install
3. firstboot crach
I've solved the problem by adding these three lines
to the %post section of the kickstart file:
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
