Description Jeremy Katz 2006-08-03 10:40:23 EDT
We seem to have broken the use of updates=http:// (or ftp) -- the updates.img is
pulled down fine, but then afterwards, networking is a bit wonky and eg, nfs
mounts constantly time out causing the install to fail
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-22 00:07:29 EDT
I'm pretty sure this is because we're bringing down the network interface.  And
the reason we started doing that was to avoid crashes in libdhcp.  David -- did
you ever make any progress in fixing that?

We really need to get this fixed before FC6 final -- not having the
functionality significantly impacts our ability to get fixes to people with
problems installing.

Any progress here?
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-10-02 15:42:28 EDT
I haven't looked at it because I've been trying to get all of the IPv6 issues
worked out.  I've made a short list of things I must fix before FC6 final and
this is one of them.  More details later.  I don't have time to look at it today.

Fixed and committed to rawhide.
