Description David Woodhouse 2007-09-21 08:01:13 EDT
When I try a network installation I'm offered two network cards -- my internal
Broadcom wireless, and the wired Ethernet device. In that order -- called 'eth0'
and 'eth1'. 

Since we don't have firmware for the bcm43xx in our installer images, I didn't
choose that one -- I chose the wired device.

It didn't work:

11:48:09 INFO    : going to pick interface
11:48:17 INFO    : going to do getNetConfig
11:48:17 INFO    : eth1 is not a wireless adapter
11:48:20 DEBUG   : waiting for link eth1...
11:48:24 DEBUG   :    0 seconds.
11:48:24 DEBUG   : sending anaconda-Linux 2.6.23-0.187.rc6.git7.fc8 ppc as dhcp
11:48:25 DEBUG   : dhcp: ioctl SIOCGIFFLAGS failed: 19 No such device

For kicks I then tried selecting the wireless device... and then it brought up
the wired device (which the kernel seems to be calling 'eth0'), and worked fine. 
(For a whole few seconds until it crashed when I selected 'upgrade' instead of
'install'. qv.)
