Deselect DHCP in Edit Interfaces (CD install) and can't go forward
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
Want to install from CD and setup up network without DHCP,
so deselect it in Edit Interfaces eth0.
2 cases tried:
1) Want only IPv4 so deselect IPv6. Put in IP / NM and [NEXT]
(unless the box IPv4 Address: ________ / ____ wants some other kind of input!)
and dialog insists we enter IPv6 IP / NP. "A value is required for field IPv6
2) Try again, keeping IPv4 and IPv6 selected, enter IP/NP for IPv4, enter
bogus IP/NP for IPv6 (just a wild guess ::ffff:10.79.240.135 but nothing after
/), then Deselect IPv6 hoping it will
ignore values, and we get...
"An unhandled exception has occurred
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lw/network_gui.py", line 473, in editDevice
if int(val) > 128 or int(val) < 0:
ValueError: invalid literal for int()
3) Finally, leave both IPv4 and IPv6 selected, use a converter to generate an
equivalent IPv6 for my IPv4 (even though I know nothing about this!) something
like this: 000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0a4f:face/10
and it lets us go forward.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On "Network Devices" page, click [Edit]
2. then Deselect [Use dynamic IP configuration (DHCP)]
3. Try one of two cases shown above
The _____ / _____ are to make the IP address input boxes look similar for IPv4
and IPv6. It is IP address / prefix.
For IPv4, I accept a dotted-quad netmask or a CIDR prefix. So the following
would be valid:
192.168.1.1 / 255.255.255.0
192.168.1.1 / 24
For IPv6, you can only enter a prefix value in the second field since there is
no netmask notation for IPv6.
I will add some labels.
I have corrected the input validation problems for manual configuration. Thanks
for the report.
