Description Jesse Keating 2009-01-20 17:16:00 EST
When we're creating the config files for use during install, /etc/resolv.conf is getting overwritten by anaconda, if the user has provided a hostname with a domain attached.  This can lead to a resolv.conf file that doesn't have any nameservers lines, even though we got nameservers from DHCP.  End result, unable to resolve dns in order to complete installation.

Punting this one to Beta.  Easy workaround, not critical to Alpha.
Comment 2 David Cantrell 2009-02-20 20:43:58 EST
Is this happening when using boot.iso and then configuring a remote repo for installation?
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2009-03-12 13:46:28 EDT
Hrm, doesn't seem to happen with boot.iso and remote repo.  I'm going to try with network obtained stage2 and see if that makes a difference.
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2009-03-12 13:54:29 EDT
I don't get this with a remote stage2 either.  I think this may have magically gone away.
