Description Tony Breeds 2009-04-16 23:06:01 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 (mockbuild@ppc6.fedora.phx.redhat.com) (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 to see where it broke.
