How reproducible: easy
Steps to Reproduce:
1. netboot ppc64 system with rawhide ppc64.img (Oct 3 version)

configure eth0 as static and point to nfs://rhlte/distros/rawhide_snap/ dir
2. anaconda will start. accept default partitioning offered (doesn't seem to
3. when eth0 config menu is offered, accept defaults offered (is same as when i

AttributeError: NetworkDeviceWindow instance has no attribute 'handleBroadCastError'
Created attachment 137715 [details]
I committed a fix for this earlier today. I discovered I had forgotten to
define the handleBroadCastError() function in network_text.py (did the ipv6
changes in network_gui.py first), and that was getting called because the
network and broadcast address calculation was failing on big endian systems.
Also fixed that today.
A new anaconda was submitted for building at the end of the workday on Oct 3, so
the fixes should be present in the Oct 4 tree composition for rawhide.
