Description Don Zickus 2009-08-24 15:35:50 UTC
Description of problem:

I was happily following the graphical anaconda screens to upgrade to rawhide, when it asked which nic to use.  So I just selected eth0 and left the defaults for dhcp and the other checkbox, then hit OK.

A few seconds later anaconda barfed.  This time I was able to figure out where the logs are kept and saved them to be attached here.

I tried to save the logs using Bugzilla, but that gave me a -3 error.  Tried again locally, but that hung forever.  Finally managed to save them from the shell prompt. 

Didn't realize how 'raw' rawhide was these days.  I thought with the alpha release coming up, things were more stable.  I should have known better.

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

It'd be helpful to know what the save-to-bugzilla error was, though it's probably related to this networking problem.  I'd still like to make it a little more robust in the face of these sorts of issues since it's the bug reporting system.

Comment 4 Don Zickus 2009-08-24 17:12:20 UTC
Ok, so I reproduced the problem again and here is my handtyped message of what I see:

Unable to File Bug

Your bug could not be filed due to the following error when communicating with bugzilla:

Error communicating with bug system: [Errno -3]
Temporary failure in name resolution

So it looks like you may be right, bugzilla can't work if the network init failed.

I remember things changing in NetworkManager around the end of August, so I think this is fallout from that.  I cannot reproduce this problem with an F-10 system upgrading to the latest rawhide.
