Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 824809
network not enabled after install
Last modified: 2012-05-29 11:42:37 EDT
bug #602185 talks about several issues, one of them is that network is not enabled after installation
I refer to bug #557112 comment #9 - using kickstart is a workaround, not a solution, and I'd like to see this resolved
I've hit the problem trying to install F17 from a DVD
I've setup my networking in the installer and got the repositories loaded from the Internet without any problem
while setting the networking I've chosen that it is a system connection (or what was the checkbox description?), yet after reboot the networking wasn't activated - I had to use "chkconfig network on"
if Anaconda is able to copy the networking settings (I use static settings) then it should be able also to copy the information that it should be used as a system connection and make it on by default
note also that I did minimal install, which does NOT include networkmanager, yet ifcfg-eth0 included the line 'NM_CONTROLLED="yes"' - this should be fixed along
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #602185 +++
The problem is network service being disabled, NM_CONTROLLED setting is irrelevant here. For more details please see bz I'm dupeing this one to.

ah, thanks, that one didn't show in my search as it is closed
however, I wonder how's that possible that I've hit a bug which should be fixed ...
Every test of F17 I've done since Beta, network has been enabled after install. NetworkManager _is_ in a minimal install, with F17. If it wasn't in your installation, then you somehow removed it yourself.

no, I haven't touched the package list
could that be that the list is not updated from the Internet? - I may have used older media (I thought it's not of importance as I was planning to do "netinstall", enabling updates during the installation)
I think so, yes. I believe the package group list is on the media, not retrieved from the remote repository. Try again with a Final ISO.
