Description of problem:

Anaconda traceback while setting up yum repositories when booting and installing from a DVD.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora-10-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso
2. Proceed to stage#2
3. Click Next through each prompt, accepting defaults
4. At hostname prompt, enter a hostname other than 'localhost'
Actual results:

Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/network.py", line 389, in lookupHostname
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/network.py", line 558, in write
    ip = self.lookupHostname()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/yuminstall.py", line 1469, in doPreInstall
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/backend.py", line 258, in doPreInstall
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 204, in moveStep
    rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 127, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1349, in nextClicked
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 79, in renderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1370, in handleRenderCallback
AttributeError: NetworkDevice instance has no attribute 'bringDeviceUp'

Expected results:

No traceback ... networking should not be activated during a DVD installation unless a network URL repo has been added?

Additional info:

The following workarounds exist:

1) boot the DVD with the boot parameter "updates=foo".  And then select "Cancel" at the updates prompt.  This will activate networking as if it were trying to download an updates.img.

2) Use a hostname of 'localhost' works around the traceback.

Changing blocks to F10Beta per discussion w/ jkeating
Comment 2 James Laska 2008-09-24 10:12:04 EDT
Reproduced on i386 using anaconda included in i386 DVD built on reducto.install.bos.redhat.com
Comment 3 James Laska 2008-09-24 10:47:52 EDT
Using the updates files from http://dcantrel.fedorapeople.org/anaconda/updates/ and loading the updates.img from a USB key does not exhibit this traceback
Comment 4 Will Woods 2008-10-25 11:56:22 EDT
Tested with Snap3 i386 DVD - no traceback, network came up as expected.
