Description Valent Turkovic 2007-04-10 11:11:48 UTC
Description of problem:
First I don't see how to select "Fedora 7 test 3" in bugzilla so I selected
"Fedora Core 6 test 3" instead.

During the install in anaconda on the package selection screen where you can
enable external repositories I click on the check box and screen appears that
says that is probing my network for an IP address. And that screen stays on
forever. I have a DHCP server running on my ADSL router and DHCP works after
Fedora 7 Test 3 install, but not during install in anaconda.

And there is no "back" button here, so system is stuck and only an poweroff or
reset helps! This is a big issue!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 test 3

How reproducible:
Every time, tested 2 times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on the box saying something like "get external software" during install
2. wait
3. Profit :)
Actual results:
System freeze, can't go back.

Expected results:
Get external repositories, install software from them.

Additional info:

Is this happening in the stage 1 part of the installer (the text-mode interface
asking you where your install source is?) or have you made it to the graphical
installer (anaconda)?

It sounds like you are in stage 2 and are trying to add a third party
repository, but that's just a guess.

Comment 2 Valent Turkovic 2007-04-10 20:30:11 UTC
This is happening in graphical install, I can't be sure it is 3rd or 4th screen.
In this screen:
I click on "add additional software repositories" and annaconda pops up a info
box saying something like "acquiering IP address for your network adapter" and
is stuck here. 
I have broadcom network adapter which uses b44 kernel module.
