Description Stephanie J. Skaff 2006-11-13 20:55:40 EST
Description of problem:
When installing FC6, Anaconda either fails (text) or refuses to allow (graphic)
when IPv6 is installed without IPv4.  (Same graphic install failure on ia64)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda shipped with FC6, i386

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Freshly install from CD/DVD using text installation
2.  At network configuration screen, deselect DHCP, IPv4,
    [activate on boot - same result either way]
Actual results: 
Error With Data window: The IPv4 information you have entered is invalid.

Exception occurred
Traceback (most recent call first):
line 400, in runScreen
line 447, in __call__
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line
517, in run
    rc = win(self.screen, instance)
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 957, in ?
TypeError: handleBroadCastError() takes
exactly 1 argument (0 given)

on OK, install exits abnormally [1/1]

Expected results:
Anaconda should continue running.

Comment 2 David Cantrell 2006-11-28 16:36:10 EST
Apologies for taking so long.  I've fixed this problem in our rawhide
development tree for anaconda.  Since you need to do your work using FC-6, I've
created an updates.img file which you can use during the FC-6 installation to
get these fixes and install.

The updates.img file is attached to this bug report as FC6-updates.img.

For instructions on using updates.img, see this page:
