Fedora 10 Netinstall fails cause of
Last modified: 2008-10-27 03:35:40 EDT
I tried to install Fedora 10 Beta x86_64 with the Netinstall CD from a NFS-Sharing.
Well done... everything fine, until the step with network connection.
If I choosed DHCP the computer seems to wait for a DHCP-Adress, but nothing was happening. After this I get the same dialog again and choosed a fixed-IP.... After a returned timeout-freeze, I looked to Ctrl+Alt+F2, set up my ipadress with
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.20 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig eth0 up
route add -net 0.0.0.0 netmask 0.0.0.0 gw 192.168.0.254
ping 192.168.0.100 (my nfs-server) - no answer
arp - HW-Adress unknown
arp - again
arp - again
arp - HW-Adresses resolved (whyever!?)
ping 192.168.0.100 - answer!
When I select an NFS-Storage after that I get this message after a recurrent freeze:
The follogwing error occured while setting up the installation repository:
(2, "mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '192.168.0.100:/mnt/nfs' failed: RPC Error: Program not registred\n3('')
Please provide the correct information for installing Fedora.
Repository: Fedora 10-Beta
by the way: On Ctrl+Alt+F4 I get a randomly written those messages every half second:
<7>hub 6-0:1.0: state 7 ports 2 chg 0000 evt 0000
<7>hub 3-0:1.0: state 7 ports 2 chg 0000 evt 0000
Now I try to install Fedora with a DVD ;)
Is your network card a gigabit realtek by any chance ?
# lspci -nn | grep Ethernet
You might be suffering from bug 460747.
yes it is :)
$ lspci -nn | grep Ethernet
02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200}: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express GigaBit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 01)
the most interesting is, that under the system itself, the dhcpclient works fine... I boot up my machine and get an IP :)
