Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68792
not writing NETWORKING=no into /etc/sysconfig/network
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:44:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda writes "NETWORKING=yes" into /etc/sysconfig/network, if network support
is installed. But when network support is not installed, it should write
NETWORKING=no, because various initscripts rely on the availability of such a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Perform fresh installation without network support. Look at
Actual Results: Should contain NETWORKING=no.
Expected Results: Does not contain NETWORKING=no.
A related bug exists in redhat-config-network, which does not write
NETWORKING=yes if network support components are added after installation and
the network is configured.
What do you mean when 'no networking support is installed'?
You mean if there are no ethernet ports on the machine?
Sorry, it should have been filed against Valhalla. I'm unable to reproduce it
with Limbo, neither with a minimal installation. Even when no Ethernet device is
installed, it puts "NETWORKING=yes".
