Description Bill Nottingham 2010-05-21 16:29:18 UTC
Description of problem:

I boot boot.iso; I pass a http updates.img  link on the command line, because I need it to fix an unrelated bug.

I choose 'NFS' to install.

anaconda asks me which device to use (eth0 vs wlan0).

anaconda configures the device, and asks for the nfs server information.

anaconda then asks me *again* which device to install through.

Comment 3 Radek Vykydal 2010-05-27 13:50:17 UTC
Happens exactly in this case:

- *no* ks over network
- stage2 over network
- updates over network

Before fetching updates dialog to choose network device appears
even if network has been already enabled before downloading stage 2.


I sent a patch for review.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2010-06-04 18:20:00 UTC
Patch approved on the list.  I'll work on getting this bug some ACKs so it can get committed.

Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2010-06-14 15:45:23 UTC
This should be fixed in anaconda-13.21.51-1.

Tested with snapshot #7 with:
linux method=http://... updates=http://...
on a VM with 2 NICs

In loader I've selected eth0 and automatic network settings. Anaconda happily proceeded with downloading stage2 and updates.img file. Moving to VERIFIED.
