Description IBM Bug Proxy 2006-08-28 17:14:07 EDT
LTC Owner is: ameet@us.ibm.com
LTC Originator is: zhiwang@cn.ibm.com

We install the Fefora 6 test 2 using NFS remote installtion, we can get the
machine booted with a tftp server, and coming to the text installtion interface,
after we select the language and then we select using NFS installtion mode, we
come to configure networks, then:

       1: if we select 
             [*] Use dynamic IP configuration (DHCP) 
             [*] Enable IPv4 support   
          the installtion program say :
              There was an error configuring   │
                      │ your network interface.    

       2. if we just select :
             [*] Enable IPv4 support   

          We can not make the configure of the network card right.

         It always say:

              There was an error configuring   │
                      │ your network interface.    

      So, we can not install Fefora 6 test 2 using NFS remote installtion.


What happens when you do not select "Use dynamic IP configuration (DHCP)" and
"Enable IPv4 support?"   

just select "Use dynamic IP configuration (DHCP)" or "Enable IPv6 support" will
all error with:

                  ┌──┌──────┤ IPv4 Needed for NFS ├───────�?─�?

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!
