When X fails to start, I get offered VNC. But the network isn't brought up first.
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2007-04-20 16:12:10 EDT
We call getLinkStatus in _isys which returns 1 for having a link, 0 for not
having a link, and -1 for unknown state.  In isys.py, we return that value to
the caller.  In network.py in hasActiveNetDev(), we say:

if isys.getLinkStatus(dev):
    return True

Hahahaha....we're dumb sometimes.

Committed fix to rawhide.
