Description DM Smith 2006-10-12 10:12:15 EDT
Description of problem:

When I got to the screen for choosing major groupings of software, I clicked on
Software Development. It stated, in a dialog, that it needed an active internet
connection (which I don't think it should as I am installing from a DVD). I was
not connected to the internet as it is my habit to not be connected during an OS
install. So I attached the ethernet cable and clicked ok/proceed (or what ever
it was that indicates that I want now connect) and I got a response with details
 (which I glanced at) stating that it was unable to get a connection to the
internet. The only choice I had was to click "Debug" or "OK". It crashed upon
clicking "OK".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
What ever ships as part of fc6pre.

How reproducible:
Follow the steps below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take defaults for all screens up to the choice for "Office and Productivity"
(checked), "Software Development" (unchecked), and "Web Server" unchecked.
2. Check "Software Development" resulting in a dialog that states "This requires
that you have an active network connection during the installation process.
Please configure a netword interface." And it lists my adapter (noted below in
additional info) and has ipv4 checked.
3. Click "OK" results in "An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most
likely a bug. Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report
against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com. I expanded the exception details
and it showed tons of output. It did not provide a way to "copy" them, do I have
not attached it.
4. Click on "OK" and it crashes producing "install exited abnormally [1/1]" on
the "screen" that initiated anaconda.
Actual results:
Does not allow for install of "Software Development" from the DVD.

Expected results:
That it does not need a connection to the internet for installing "Software
Development" (or anything that's on the DVD, such as "Web Server")
That it is able to enable my internet connection when it does require an
internet connection.
That if unable to get an internet connection that it allows me to continue
That there is some way to "copy" the exception details, perhaps to a usb floppy
or usb drive (hard drive had not been formated at this point)

Additional info:
I am running on a Toshiba Tekra S2. It uses Marvell Technology Group Ltd.
88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet. I don't think the driver for this is installed
during hardware probing.

The updates.img referenced in the release announcement has the fix for this. 
Comment 2 DM Smith 2006-10-12 10:45:51 EDT
Can you point me to updates.img and the release announcement. I'd would like to
test the fix.
