Description Lonny Jacobson 2001-02-18 14:26:58 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i586)

I performed an FTP installation which required me to configure my ISA
NE2000-compatible NIC.  Installation was apparently successful except that
the `ne' module was not loaded so that my network card was configured.

I added the following line in /etc/modules.conf before the provided
"options ne ..." line:
	alias eth0 ne

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Fisher via FTP
2. Configure a generic ISA NE2000-compatible NIC
3. Install all packages
4. Upon successful installation, boot with no additional options
5. The NIC should not be initialized during the "network" startup.

Expected Results:  The "network" startup should not have FAILED.

The installer needs to write the alias for any ISA cards it configures. Assigning
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2001-02-26 08:41:49 EST
If you install by booting the installer with 'linux expert', does it work then?
Comment 3 Erik Troan 2001-02-26 15:11:07 EST
There is another bug for this (I don't know the #) which is deferred, and has a
full explanation of why. This only affects HTTP/FTP FTP installs, and the fix is
too risky for this release.
Comment 4 Michael Young 2001-02-27 04:14:14 EST
Probably bug 25571
Comment 5 Glen Foster 2001-03-02 13:05:21 EST
Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.
Comment 6 Erik Troan 2001-03-06 16:51:07 EST
I found a better fix which was quite easy. Fixed in rawhide.
