User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1
Description of problem:
Using the boot.iso and choosing either DHCP or static network addresses to get ready to use HTTP install or NFS install methods fails.
No error is recieved, but no address is assigned either.
The ethernet card in the machine is a Davicom chipset
a CNET PRO200 10/100 ethernet PCI card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5t2 - Anaconda 10.91.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose DHCP network
2. Wait about 20 seconds
3. Get returned to the screen for network settings
Actual Results: No error window, nothing, just get returned to the network settings chooser.
Expected Results: I would have guessed it'd load the eth0 modules, and sent a DHCPDISCOVER to teh broadcast, obviously not I have 4 other PCs on the same router.
Nothing more at this time.
Can you get to the graphical stage somehow, switch to tty2, and attach your
/tmp/anaconda.log file to this bug?
Closing due to lack of response to request for information.
