anaconda 12.44

Description of problem:
anaconda 12.44 from 11/05 works ok, after disk partitioning a dialog to enable eth0 appears (see attachment).

anaconda 12.45 and 12.46 (from 11/08) does not display that dialog, only says that it is unable to read information from repositories (see attachment).

When I do "dhclient eth0" from console, it correctly obtains IP address and network works.

How reproducible:

It works again with anaconda 12.46 from 11/09 boot.iso. Should I close the bug?
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-11-09 10:18:54 EST
There was an anaconda-12.46-2 that went into the latest image, so yes this can likely be closed.
Comment 5 Kamil Páral 2009-11-09 10:24:35 EST
Confirmed from adamw that this issue should be fixed by the latest version bump.
Comment 6 Kamil Páral 2009-11-09 10:25:15 EST
Misclicked, setting correct status.

This was broken in Rawhide 20091108 boot.iso and works (confirmed by multiple testers) in 20091109. What we don't know is why...

We thought this may somehow be https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=533740 , which we fixed yesterday, but I can't see how. yum.log matches in both 1108 and 1109.

The fact that it works is great, but I'm a little worried about what changed...
