Comment 1 Lukáš Nykrýn 2018-06-28 10:19:41 UTC
The network-scripts were split from the initscripts package. In your case, you just specified that you want to only upgrade the main package, so ended up without network-scripts, but the general "dnf upgrade" path works. So I don't think that this is a problem:


But, the fact that cloud images still use network-scripts is the actual bug here. There was a fesco decision, that they should be moved to networkd years ago.

These days I would be more for NetworkManager, but definitely not the old scripts. This needs to be investigated and fixed.

Comment 2 Dusty Mabe 2018-06-28 12:49:13 UTC
I'm thinking we should just add in NetworkManager in the cloud base image since that's what the rest of Fedora uses.

Comment 3 Bruno Goncalves 2018-06-28 13:05:35 UTC
Note, I've reported this issue due https://pagure.io/cloud-sig/issue/289

Yeah, I think NetworkManager would be fine too, although some might complain that it leaves a process running taking up ram.

Comment 5 Bruno Goncalves 2018-07-12 08:06:53 UTC
I'm just wondering if there is any update about this issue as Fedora-Cloud-Base-Rawhide-20180711.n.0 still does not work.

Comment 6 Dusty Mabe 2018-07-12 13:20:20 UTC
I have asked jdoss to open a PR to pagure.io/fedora-kickstarts on master branch to add NM to the cloud base image.

please ping back in a week.

Comment 7 Bruno Goncalves 2018-07-16 10:42:09 UTC
Thanks for the PRs, I do not know if it is related to it or not, but the current rawhide qcow2 is not booting at all.

With Fedora-Cloud-Base-Rawhide-20180711.n.0.x86_64.qcow2 I see it booting up.

but on Fedora-Cloud-Base-Rawhide-20180714.n.0.x86_64.qcow2 I do not see any message of boot process.

Comment 8 Bruno Goncalves 2018-07-20 07:07:27 UTC
I've just tried Fedora-Cloud-Base-Rawhide-20180719.n.0.x86_64.qcow2 and it works for me. Do you think this BZ can be closed?
