Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-12-23 07:49:42 UTC
Description of problem:
  installer (prior to loading anaconda proper) fails to initialize eth0

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
  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.

Expected results:
  normal install sequence

Additional info:
  machine hw-uuid: 4cf6a0ba-2941-4235-87a9-b2a55d827302

Comment 1 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-12-23 08:00:55 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-12-26 19:13:29 UTC
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

Comment 3 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-12-26 19:26:40 UTC
That didn't work.  It still complains about "operation not permitted" on window
vt03 as reported above.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-12-26 19:43:27 UTC
Reproduced; looks like a problem in libdhcp
