boot.iso: anaconda is not setting domain in resolve.conf for net install
Last modified: 2008-08-26 17:22:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When using boot.iso to do a net install the domain does not get set from dhcp.
This means that the host in the url to the repo needs to be fully-qualified.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide from boot.iso
2. on repos screen edit Fedora Rawhide repo to use a local baseurl:
3. continue install
No domain set in resolve.conf so anaconda attempts 10 times
but repo can't be accessed.
Set domain name in resolve.conf or complain that host/repo can't be found.
Also it would be nice if the local mirror could be set before anaconda retrieves any
info for "Fedora - Rawhide" from fedora mirrors, but I guess that deserves a
After complaining that the host or repo is unreachable there should be
an opportunity to edit the repo configuration to correct any mistake in the urls.
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda because of David's NetworkManager patches against rawhide.
