Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138773
networking fails during "first boot" sequence
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
within 2 hours, running first boot after install, network card shows
enabled, all packet transport stops, all active ports; if surfing,
page stops loading. on reboot, network card not found. on power-down
and power-back-up, network card is normal, packet transfer normal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC1, FC2 beta and final release, FC3
I've installed on 4 different PC's, same result.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.format during install, install everything
2.NIC setup alway on w/ static IP, any IP/any gateway, no firewall
3.on first boot, connect to internet w/ browser or updater and start
never works more than a few hours
shouldn't it work longer than that?
this may relate to various update failures; I've learned to avoid it
by immediately powering down and starting cold after firstboot.
