Description of problem:
When installing Red Hat 7.3 to a laptop computer, if the only installed
networking device is a serial modem is connected to the /dev/ttyS0 serial port,
anaconda does not install the redhat-config-network package. According to the
release notes, this package is needed for dialup access.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.New installation of Red Hat 7.3 (not an upgrade)
2.Laptop installation class
3. KDE selected as desktop environment
4.On target system, only a serial modem is installed e.g. no pcmcia ethernet
cards, no onboard ethernet is available. /dev/ttyS0 has the modem connected to it.
5. Modem is turned on and has telephone line connected to it. 
6. Modem should be detected. Redhat-config-network program ought to be installed
as a result.


Expected Results:  The serial modem should have been detected and the
redhat-config-network package installed. Since this is a laptop installation and
the user is likely to pop in a pcmcia card at any time, the
redhat-config-network package should be installed by default.

The redhat-config-network package will be included in the package set if the
user chooses the Network Support component.  That's as it should be.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2002-07-08 12:38:00 UTC
Someone please verify this for installation of type "Workstation" and "KDE".

1 Network Support {
  ? GNOME {

Doesn't this mean, redhat-config-network is only installed when GNOME is installed?

I've seen several new reports recently about redhat-config-network not being
available on KDE workstation installs.
