Description James Laska 2008-11-07 09:19:47 EST
Description of problem:

Booting from a DVD with syslog=<host> does not work since networking is not active.  I'm not sure if this is supposed to work, or if anaconda should activate networking when seeing "syslog=" has been requested?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert F10 Preview DVD into system
2. Boot off DVD with argument "syslog=some.host.com"
Actual results:
syslog information is not sent to the target system.  It appears networking is not enabled.

Expected results:
Should networking be enabled when requesting syslog= ?
