Can't NFS install with kickstart via network
Last modified: 2008-01-24 16:54:27 EST
Description of problem:
Trying an NFS install using a kickstart file from HTTP fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
126.96.36.199 (rawhide 2008-01-22)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer using ks=http:<URL>
Fails after reading kickstart file when trying to initialize network
to mount NFS images
The problem is that after fetching the kickstart file via the
network, the network is not totally torn down. When NFS mount
tries to start up, it tries to reinitialize the network via DHCP
which fails because there are extant overlapping routes.
The kickstart file I used is a virgin one obtained by installing
rawhide today and then saving to a web URL.

Handle re-add of existing routes
Tested with libdhcp-1.99.5-1.fc8.src.rpm
Thanks for the patch. It's in libdhcp-1.99.7 now, which will appear in rawhide
Alas rawhide (i386) 2008-01-24 doesn't boot - "/init not found"

That would be a different bug. Tree compose failure, most likely.
