Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444267
Starting network in rescue mode aborts operation
Last modified: 2008-06-02 13:02:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed Fedora 9 preview and booted in rescue mode to change grub.conf. I
answered yes to start network but it fails and reboot is the only option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot in rescue mode with Fedora 9 preview
2. Answer yes to start network
Rescue mode aborts
Network is started and rescue mode continues
This is done on an IBM Thinkpad Z60m
How did it fail?
Sorry for the incomplete info and late reply. Here goes:
Anaconda stops instantly after selecting yes to start network.
This is the output:
dev = self.chooseNetworkDevice(screen)
UnicodeDecodeError='ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 4: ordinal
not in range (128)
And also, I selected norwegian language and keyboard before the network selection.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can't reproduce this with Fedora 9 and I believe that this would have had the
same root cause as bug 443040. Are you still seeing this with Fedora 9 final?
