Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 256201
LiveCD network weirdness
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:24:17 EST
After booting up off the LiveCD (a copy dated 25 May 2007), after "fedora"
logged in, a pop-up window appeared in the upper-left-hand corner of the screen
that said, "Connection established / You are now connected to the wired
network". But I don't have an ethernet cord plugged into the laptop, only a
wireless card which the LiveCD failed to initialize properly due to missing
proprietary firmware. Though ifconfig shows an IP address (169.254.0.231 in
addition to the loopback 127.0.0.1), when I try to ping a known IP address, it
says "Network is unreachable".
can you give the output of /sbin/lscpi and /sbin/lsusb? Also, what's the output
of 'cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier' when a cable is _not_ plugged in?
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Thank you in advance.
Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
