Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496180
powerpc: no network in installer
Last modified: 2009-04-17 17:31:20 EDT
Description of problem:
No network access in the installer. After booting the kernel and initrd activating the network fails. This worked in the Beta kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux version 188.8.131.52-70.fc11.ppc64 (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.4.0 20090409 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.32) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Mon Apr 13 14:08:31 EDT 2009
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
Boot (via yaboot) the rawhide ppc64 kernel and initrd and wait for NM to fail to activate the network.
I have tried both DHCP and manual configuration. I have also run tcpdump while NM it trying to bring up the network and see no traffic from the target machine.
Next week I can try to bisect between the Beta kernel and 184.108.40.206-70 to see where it broke.
