output of "ifconfig" on F14 x86_64 KVM guest after network error
Description of problem:
When trying to install F14 x86_64 RC2 as a KVM guest on a F13 x86_64 host, immediately after writing partitioning options to disk, a window pops up "Select network interface" which says "This requires that you have an active network connection during the installation process. Please configure a network interface.". Clicking on "OK", a "Network Connections" window comes up, with an "Auto eth0" entry. I click on "Close", get a "Waiting for NetworkManager to activate these devices: eth0" message, then after a wait, pops up window titled "Error Enabling Network", which says "An error occurred trying to bring up the eth0 network interface.". Going to VT2, the ifconfig command shows that eth0 is already up.
I tried disabling the firewall completely on the host with no difference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Am also unable to do the test
due to failure to bring up the network in order to retrieve the file traceback.img.

traceback when rescue mode attempts to bring up the network (x86_64)
If I disable the host firewall before starting the guest, then the guest can access the network. Going to VT2, ifconfig eth0 now shows an extra line with a local IPv4 IP address.
Seems to be fixed in RC3.
