Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195907
/sbin/loader doesn't pay attention to ksdevice=macaddress
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
When using kickstart the anaconda loader doesn't pay attention to the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kickstart install on a host with more than one ethernet device
2. provide ksdevice=<MACADDRESS> on the cmdline
3. Anaconda will still prompt for which nic card.
Console log showing the problem...
I can add support for this method, but don't open a bug asking to specify the
ethernet card by PCI device ID or something.
Just to clarify this is a regression. This used to work. So no I won't open a
bug asking for pci device or id.. I don't understand why you would even state
that? I'm just asking for functionality that was present to be added back.
Right. Don't take what I said to mean anything. I think I got up on the wrong
side of the bed this morning.
Fixed in rawhide now.
