Description Michael DeHaan 2008-12-16 15:06:03 EST
Description of problem:

qemu installs through python-virtinst for F10 guests seem to be having a DHCP timeout issue.  

Installing a kickstart that is proven to work on a /dev/kvm system with virtio or a PXEd physical host using cobbler/koan does not yield the same results for a regular qemu install.

Network Manager fails to configure the network interface on the first try and hitting "retry" in Anaconda solves the problem and the install continues normally.

-- host does not matter
-- guest must be running F-10
-- guest must be created using qemu

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

(0.5.0-1.fc10.i386)  F-10 latest everything at the time, non-testing

How reproducible:

seems 100% Consistent

Steps to Reproduce:
1.   See description
Actual results:

NetworkManager in Anaconda fails to configure the interface requiring the user to hit retry

Expected results:

Fully automated install is successful

Talked with this on IRC with crobinson in #virt/OFTC, said to file against libvirt and it could be triaged to other components as needed.
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2009-01-21 04:46:33 EST
Does this still happen?

If you "virsh net-stop default; virsh net-start default" before starting the install, does that help?

Attach output from:

  $> brctl show
  $> iptables -L -v -n
  $> ps -ef | grep dnsmasq
  $> ifconfig -a
  $> cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Missing info from reporter, closing

This seems to have been better lately, at least when using real bridges.  I'll let you know if it happens again.
