Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 594802
asks me to configure networking twice
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:23:39 EDT
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.

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