Description of problem:
When running an install it skips over the network configuration page. I've installed FC4 32bit on another machine and it worked fine. This only happens when installing on the 64bit system. I only have this system to test on at the moment. FC2 worked fine in 64bit mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
stock FC4 installer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert the DVD and boot machine
2. run through the installer
Actual Results: the network configuration page isn't shown at any point
Expected Results: the network config page should have come up at some point while running the installer
I ran lspci on the machine and it did list a broadcom gigabit network card. It is integrated on the motherboard and is a dual NIC. I also tried to run kudzu after the system was running to see if it would detect a network card and it didn't.
Can you provide /var/log/anaconda.log from the machine?
As it turns out, the network hardware on the machine has stopped working. I
noticed this after I booted a Knoppix disk and the network cards werent
detected. BIOS also doesn't show the cards. Unfortunately the network cards
are integrated on the motherboard. Might try a BIOS update, but ultimately FC4
wasn't at fault.
