Description Marian Ganisin 2010-08-13 04:02:44 EDT
Created attachment 438619 [details]
installation log files (Server variant)

On installed system:

[root@system1 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 
DEVICE="eth0"
HWADDR="52:54:00:12:34:56"
NM_CONTROLLED="yes"
ONBOOT="no"

Manual installation in virtual machine with network installation source.

I configured network just for an installation (as I did it with previous builds), that was dhcp configuration.

Not even network manager starts it automatically.

This is different behaviour in comparison to previous versions.

Marian, could you please post also /tmp/ifcfg.log grabbed from install environment before reboot? This is inconvenient, I should to send a patch for copying it to installed system as other log files.

It seems that NM is not loading ifcfg-rh plugin (see bug #620823), so network is enabled even for our initial ifcfg file containing ONBOOT=no, and therefore it is not enabled later which would be done by writing out ONBOOT=yes to ifcfg file.
Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2010-08-13 06:13:21 EDT
Dan, do you have any idea why ifcfg plugin wouldn't be loaded in recent builds? See comment #4 please.
Comment 7 Marian Ganisin 2010-08-13 09:18:45 EDT
Interesting. Network configuration dialog is not even displayed. Network is started in advance. When installer is asking 'Choose a Language' network is already up. 

Maybe related to change introduced in Bug 617860 or something similar.
Comment 8 Dan Williams 2010-08-13 12:20:23 EDT
Radek, does the system have /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, and if so, what's in it?
Comment 9 Dan Williams 2010-08-13 12:34:01 EDT
Yeah, so the issue here is that NM stopped shipping a deprecated config file (nm-system-settings.conf) in the RPM and now ships NetworkManager.conf, and I did not anticipate that the anaconda image creation code would need to be modified for this change as well.

anaconda-13.21.72/scripts/mk-images:    cp -a $IMGPATH/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf $MBD_DIR/etc/NetworkManager
anaconda-13.21.72/scripts/upd-instroot:etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf

In snap #12:

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 
DEVICE="eth0"
BOOTPROTO="dhcp"
HWADDR="00:16:36:54:B2:EA"
IPVINIT="yes"
IPV6_AUTOCONF="yes"
NM_CONTROLLED="yes"
ONBOOT="yes"


ifconfig shows interface is up. ping command works. Moving to VERIFIED.
