Description Harry Dolan 2006-07-12 19:01:50 UTC
Description of problem:

Anaconda gets a fatal error just after last package is installed.  (Log file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 

How reproducible:

I ran the install with the install iso files on a separate hard disk (/dev/hdb)
to partition /dev/hda11 using a kickstart file (listed below).  This is
something I've done many times with FC5.  I use the pxeboot kernel with the
following parameters:

title Fedora 6 INSTALL
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /kernels/fc6-pxeboot/vmlinuz
        initrd /kernels/fc6-pxeboot/initrd.img

Here is ks-linbox.cfg:

harddrive --partition=hdb1 --dir=/distros/fedora/6
lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
xconfig --driver "nv" --videoram 65536 --resolution 1920x1200 --depth 16
monitor --hsync 30-92 --vsync 50-180
network --device eth0 --bootproto static --ip --netmask --gateway --nameserver,, --hostname linbox.dolanhousenetwork
--device eth1 --bootproto static --ip --netmask
--gateway --nameserver,,
--hostname linbox.dolanhouse
rootpw --iscrypted $1$XJidHanQ$FV.vrso84iIxcZ0mh3bdz1
firewall --enabled --port=22:tcp
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
selinux --disable
timezone America/Chicago
bootloader --location=none

part /            --fstype ext3            --onpart hda11
part swap                       --noformat --onpart hda5
part /boot        --fstype ext3 --noformat --onpart hda1

I just determined that I can make the message go away if I substitute the
following (incorrect for me) "network" statements in the kickstart file:

network --device eth0 --onboot no --bootproto dhcp
network --device eth1 --onboot no --bootproto dhcp

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-07-13 16:54:56 UTC
confignetdevice and pumpnetdevice have been rewritten to use libdhcp and added
back to isys.  We're still in the process of adding in IPv6 support to the UI
elements, so for now the confignetdevice and pumpnetdevices functions just do IPv4.
