Description of problem:
FC10 Beta Graphical Installer crashes if network adapter is not recognized and no recognized network adapter is installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build new PC with unrecognized network adapter (Intel® 82566DM in my case, which is recognized in FC9 Installer..)
2. Pick any installation path.
3. Installer crashes failing to install
"An unhandled exception has occurred.."
anaconda 126.96.36.199 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/network.py", line 529, in doPreinstall
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/yuminstall.py", line 1469, in doPreinstall
tons of pages with the effect being
"UnboundLocalError: local variable 'dev' referenced before assignment"
Checking ALT-F2 then dmesg shows no eth0 device recognized when the above integrated NIC is recognized in FC9.
Installing a well recognized NIC in a PCI slot and the installation works beautifully to completion.
ASUS P5E VM DO was a fully supported mainboard in FC9 with the exception of the integrated video required an X11 update. It appears in FC10 beta, support for this NIC in the installer has been removed?
I had the same problem on a Lenovo T61 with a Intel 82566MM Gigabit Network.
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:
You can try F12 rawhide again.If problems continue, please attach /tmp/anacdump.txt
and lspci -v output on FC9
This should be fixed in F12.
