Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236884
using dhcp ip setup of extra repositories doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
trying to install from 16th of April rsynced f7 x86_64 tree.
using boot.iso as cd installing x86_64 image in qemu/kvm on FC6_x86_64 host.
I begin installation specifying http type and anaconda sets correctly
dhcp ip initially.
Then, when I try to setup extra repository, anaconda asks again ip
configuration as it needs to connect to internet, asking also def
gateway and dns server.
But at this time it stays undefinitely with the window telling
"getting ip for eth0".....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installation and select http method and dhcp
2. select to customize for extra repositories
3. pop up saying try to get ip for eth0
pop up saying try to get ip for eth0
it Should try only to set up def gw and resolver, as it already get an ip before
or at least recomplete getting the ip?
David -- is this related to the nlbuf stuff you fixed yesterday?
Yes, this was a problem with the RTM_GETLINK reading and the netlink cache was
empty, so hasActiveNetDev() was returning false.
Fixed in rawhide.
tried with resynced f7 right now. It doesn't work
anaconda is anaconda-220.127.116.11-1.x86_64.rpm and I'm booting from the boot.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 gcecchi gcecchi 8443904 Apr 18 10:47 images/boot.iso
so I think it contains updated anaconda too.
As I'm booting from qemu/kvm I'm going to add screenshot of the display as soon
as I click "Add additional software repositories" button where the system stays
(25 minutes now...) and other ones I comment...
I don't know if this could be related to qemu dhcp embedded server or if it is a

note that if I run from vc 2
nslookup www.google.com it works, so that the network seems up
could it be another kind of problem.... example gui frozen?

lspci for my vm
inside installation if I do an ls -l in vc 2, my anaconda binary is 31743 bytes
dated 17 Apr at 23:58, so it seems the latest one.
I'm not able to reproduce the problem here. My guess is it has something to do
with the virtual machine. We perform some ioctl() calls to determine if a link
is active and running. These may not be working correctly on the vm.
Can you try it on a real system and not a virtual machine?
