Description Gary Thomas 2008-01-22 16:57:33 EST
Description of problem:

Trying an NFS install using a kickstart file from HTTP fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): (rawhide 2008-01-22)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer using ks=http:<URL>
Actual results:

Fails after reading kickstart file when trying to initialize network
to mount NFS images

Expected results:

Additional info:

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.

Tested with libdhcp-1.99.5-1.fc8.src.rpm
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2008-01-23 20:47:56 EST
Thanks for the patch.  It's in libdhcp-1.99.7 now, which will appear in rawhide
as libdhcp-1.99.7-1.fc9.
Comment 4 Gary Thomas 2008-01-24 13:31:03 EST
Alas rawhide (i386) 2008-01-24 doesn't boot - "/init not found"

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