Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470144
boot.iso + no network devices should exit the installer early
Last modified: 2008-12-05 15:09:15 EST
See bug #469339 for the workaround in F-10. With boot.iso on a system with no available network devices, we should terminate installation before allowing the user to go through the steps leading up to package selection.
It may not be very obvious how to discover that you're on a boot.iso before repo init, which happens after partitioning. That's probably well past when you're looking to check. Commit 7d5f82a950268a38d8af59921f4d9658e65af886 is probably a good starting point for some ideas.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
