Description of problem:
When trying to install current rawhide on a Dell Precision 390, anaconda seems unable
to bring up the network interface by itself. The enable network interwork dialog
keeps popping up on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go through GUI until partitioning page
2. Enable network interface dialog appearing -> OK
1. formats drive
2. dialog reappears, goto 2...
2. nic to be recognised without any prompting
rawhide installs ok under qemu/kvm and live installs ok on machine.
Created attachment 317033 [details]
when I clock on OK in the NIC dialog I get this backtrace.
I could observe the same symptom on PLAYSTATION 3.
Still happens with anaconda-188.8.131.52-1.i386.
... and with anaconda-184.108.40.206-1 fwiw.
I found workaround: booting boot.iso with "linux askmethod".
and also with anaconda-220.127.116.11-1
Fixed in current rawhide -thanks!
