VNC install doesn't show actual IP address
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
When perfoming a vnc install of rawhide, the message from the VNC server doesn't
actually inform the user of the actual IP addr to connect remotely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. pxe boot, using http install with vnc
WARNING!!! VNC server running with NO PASSWORD!
You can use the vncpassword=<password> boot option
if you would like to secure the server.
12:27:02 INFO : The VNC server is now running.
12:27:02 INFO : Please connect to localhost.localdomain:1 to begin the install
INFO messages should show actual IP address for VNC connection, instead of
localhost, in my case 192.168.1.121 which has been assigned by DHCP.
Machine has dual NIC, only eth0 is connected.
Fixed in rawhide. Thanks for the report.
