Description of problem:
GUI install from CD, all defaults, except for manual
partitioning, workstation install. Desktop system, no PCMCIA.
Ended up with BOOT=no in ifcfg-eth0 config file.
Repeated install twice to make sure.
Changed to BOOT=yes, restarted, pump worked fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
Perform default GUI workstation install from CD. Choose ALL defaults
except for manual partitioning. Partition layout is
sda1 /boot 30Meg
sda2 swap 500Meg
sda3 / about 3.5G
The check box to start interface on boot is checked
Probably irrelevant, but Russan language was selected in addition to US
English in both cases.
Actual Results: after install eth0 is not up.
Expected Results: after install eth0 is up.
Additional info: none.
[root@localhost network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth0
Anaconda apparantly forgets to turn this to on.
