Description Will Woods 2007-03-27 23:47:27 UTC
In anaconda-, when the "Add additional software repositories button"
is clicked, anaconda always tries to fetch a dhcp address, whether the network
interface is configured or not. (see bug #232512).

Even if the device is not configured, the installer then hangs forever while
waiting for a dhcp response.

There should probably be a timeout on waiting for that response.
