Description Bill Nottingham 2008-04-14 21:36:54 UTC
Description of problem:

If we're doing NM by default, we may need to rethink how this works. Right now
it just lets you configure some things that may be ignored, and when run from
the live install, doesn't actually reflect things like 'active device' correctly.

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

rawhide-20080408 livecd

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-14 22:17:09 UTC
Yes, we definitely should.  Had NM landed by default in advance of the feature
freeze, we might have actually changed things for F9  :-/

Comment 2 David Cantrell 2008-04-14 22:29:04 UTC
I have a huge patch in the works for networking overhaul to anaconda (stage1 and stage2) to do several 
things, most notably getting rid of libdhcp and making it easier to interact with NM.  Just an fyi.

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2008-09-16 01:01:27 UTC
I've reduced the network post configuration screen to just asking for the hostname.
