Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467960
No notification when eth# fails to connect
Last modified: 2009-02-16 15:32:33 EST
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.
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.
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.
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.
