Description Megan Bock 2002-02-13 15:05:41 EST
Description of Problem:
If a system has both tr0 and eth0, you can configure only eth0 in the text 
mode install. There is no way to specify which card to apply settings to -- static IP settings are 
automatically assigned to eth0. In GUI install, you can configure either tr0 or eth0 (or both). 

Even when you know that this will happen, you can't just skip it to do later. You have to enter 
network settings that you know are going to be wrong or incomplete.	

number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install in text mode on a system that has tr0 and eth0.
Enter static IP settings.
3. cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-tr0 and ifcfg-eth0. 
eth0 will have network settings; tr0 will have only DEVICE=tr0 and ONBOOT=no.

Static IP information is written to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0. 
You must reconfigure network settings.

Expected Results:
When multiple adapters are 
present, installer should ask which adapter settings are for.

We now allow you to configure all interfaces in text mode

Can you confirm this issue is resolved?
Comment 3 Megan Bock 2002-03-21 10:27:47 EST
I tested this and the installer does give the opportunity to configure both
