Description John Reiser 2007-10-05 18:37:47 EDT
Description of problem: Text-mode install via http errors out when there is an
unconfigured [and unused] ethernet interface.

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

How reproducible: haven't tried

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a machine with more than one ethernet interface, boot the rescue disk,
choose new install, http method.
2. Configure only the builtin ethernet interface (usually the last one in the
list), leaving all the other ethernet [cards] UNCONFIGURED.
Actual results:Exception Occurred
"/usr/lib/anaconda/netowrk.ph", line 135, in __str__
  if self.get('bootproto').lower() != 'dhcp' ...

Expected results: No exception

Additional info: graphical install gets no Exception.
