Description Moritz Barsnick 2007-05-03 11:30:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing Fedora 7 Test4 from DVD (f7-test4-i386.torrent).
System: VMware Player with vmwarez.com-Generic-LiveCD-Virtual-Machine (from 
Host: Lenovo T60 running Windows XP SP2 32bit on Intel T2400 (Core Duo)

During initial installation setup, I selected "Add additional software 
repositories". A "popup" came up, saying "Sending request for IP information 
for eth0...". Here, installation stalled forever with a rotating cursor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run vmwarez.com-Generic-LiveCD-Virtual-Machine with F7T4 DVD in (connected) 
drive, Ethernet "connected" and "bridged".
2. Go through initial installation steps.
3. Select automatic DHCP config for eth0. VMware should provide virtual DHCP on 
the virtual eth0.
3. At the step "The default installation of Fedora includes a set of spftware 
applicable for general internet usage. What additional tasks would you like 
your system to include support for?", select "Office and Productivity" (is 
preselected) and "Software Development".
4. Select "Add additional software repositories".

Actual results:
A "popup" comes up, saying "Sending request for IP information for eth0...". 
The cursor rotates forever. The popup never terminates or times out. The popup 
cannot be stopped, interrupted, escaped.

Expected results:
Installer should initialize eth0 (DHCP query I guess) and ask for proxy 
settings. If DHCP does not work, or network connection fails (for whatever 
reason, e.g. proxy setting assumed done before), the installer should bail out 
and fall back.

Additional info:
I'm assuming anaconda is the correct component to report against. Please 
correct if wrong.

The named virtual machine is made for live CDs/DVDs, but should be generic 
enough to allow an install (from what I've read).

saw this also with test4 on vmware-server.i386; according to the dhcpd-logs it
seems dhcpd handed out the ip to the vmware-guest correctly

Configuring eth0 statically worked for me so I could move on. Network worked
normally with dhcp after install finished.

Reproduced with rawhide + changes so that we actually try to configure again...
