installer fails to initialize eth0 for NFS install
Last modified: 2008-01-03 23:18:19 EST
Description of problem:
installer (prior to loading anaconda proper) fails to initialize eth0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
install goes through all the motions required then fails to initialize the
eth0 interface. Main screen fails to provide any details or traceback.
Examination of vt3 shows:
INFO : result of pumpSetupInterface is pumpSetupInterface failed: set link -
1: operation not permitted
prior to this it notes that eth0 is only interface and that eth0 is not a
wireless interface. There seem to be no other relevant notices by the installer
on other screens.
normal install sequence
machine hw-uuid: 4cf6a0ba-2941-4235-87a9-b2a55d827302
the fault is reliably reproduceable on three attempts. I tried (#2) after a
reboot, and #3 with "noipv6" on kernel line. Also (just trying) enforcing=0
makes no difference.
Can you try and see if it works if you boot with 'linux ksdevice=eth0 ip=dhcp'
(or whichever net method you want to use)? Although I'm going to try to see if
I can get it to happen as soon as I can get a tree synced
That didn't work. It still complains about "operation not permitted" on window
vt03 as reported above.
Reproduced; looks like a problem in libdhcp
