Description Robert Dowling 2006-09-15 12:53:02 EDT
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: 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):

FC6test3 CD's

How reproducible:

Every time

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
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 1 David Cantrell 2006-09-18 17:19:27 EDT
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: / / 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.
