Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 325071
kickstart installation and multiple NICs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
We are trying an unattended installation of f8test3 (kickstart/NFS) on a Dell
Latitude D600 with two network interfaces : one wired BCM5702X (on which we try
the install), one wireless BCM4306 (disabled in the BIOS)
There are two problems :
We have in our isolinux.cfg something like :
menu label ^Kickstart
append ksdevice=bootif ks=nfs:xxx:/kickstart/ initrd=initrd.img noipv6
But it doesn't work, we get :
You have multiple network devices on this system. Which would
you like to install through ?
eth0 : Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
eth1 : Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5702X Gigabit Ethernet
Second problem :
If we select eth1 it doesn't work and we get in tty3
INFO : eth1 is not a wireless device
If we select eth0 : installation works on the wired interface ?!?
This is probably due to some of the horkiness around the bcm43xx module in
test3. That should be fixed up now and I just verified that ksdevice=bootif
does the right thing on a box with multiple nics.
