Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 769046
A "minimal" install has no functional networking.
Last modified: 2011-12-20 08:17:19 EST
Installing a Fedora 16 system using the "minimal" target will result in a system without functional networking. The "minimal" install target does not install NetworkManager, while at the same time it does not enable the "network" init script:
# chkconfig --list | grep network
network 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:on 6:off
This results in a system that boots with no active networking, which is quite surprising when one has just completed a network install.
Either installing NetworkManager or enabling the "network" script will solve the problem.
That output from chkconfig is erroneous (I have been poking at my system), and it looks like I'm unable to correct it. When the system is freshly installed, all runlevels are set to "off".
