Description Andy Lindeberg 2008-10-21 16:51:02 EDT
On the Network Manager screen between partitioning and package selection, when the user selects an eth interface that is not connected to the internet, anaconda thinks for a while and then dumps them back onto that screen with no indication of why. Far more helpful would be a notification of "Unable to connect to network with eth#" or something similar.
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2008-10-24 01:15:28 EDT
Committed a fix to git:

Will be in the next build.

All I have it doing is telling the user we were unable to configure the interface.  Let me know if the wording can be improved/changed/whatever.
Comment 2 David Cantrell 2008-10-24 11:24:28 EDT
I broke the string freeze, which we shouldn't/don't want to do.

Reverted this fix for now.  Will dump it in anaconda after F-10 is done or we have branched anaconda for F-10.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 23:06:11 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Patch committed to git, so the next rawhide build of anaconda should include this fix.
