Kickstart install fail on e1000e ethernet intel DQ75TM 82578DM
Last modified: 2017-07-13 08:45:13 EDT
Description of problem:
If a kickstart install (ks=http://ipaddr/file) is attempted onto an Intel DQ57TM motherboard it fails with "No carrier detected on interface eno1". A manual install using the same distribution media, hardware and network cable succeeds and the eno1 ethernet device works AOK after install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(as shipped on netinst.iso). Also Fedora 24 is the same.
Easily, given an Intel DQ57TM motherboard
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off netinst.iso media
2.At fedora prompt hit TAB to edit kernel invocation
3.Add ks=http://192.168.0.x/ks/file (or whatever is locally appropriate)
"No carrier detected on interface eno1"
timeout and failure messages
System installed by kickstart
A manual install booted off the same media using "nearest mirror" as the installation source succeeds
The exact same kickstart install invocation succeeds if the network cable is attached to the system via an Edimax EU-4208 USB Ethernet adapter.
Post-installation either of these ways, the system boots and uses the on-board Ethernet without any further issues
At this point lsmod reports e1000e and lspci reports intel 82578DM Gigabit Ethernet hardware.
I would guess the fault to be with whatever version or equivalent of e1000e is shipped on Fedora 25 (and 24) netinst.iso
I don't know how to identify the component at fault. It would be helpful if a pseudo-component "kickstart" could be created for kickstart installation failure reports. e1000 module is provided by kernel-core rpm on the installed system.
