Description Matt Domsch 2003-03-14 11:55:28 EST
Description of problem:
Dell's factory installation process uses DHCP and a PXE server, and uses 
dhclient to obtain an IP address during kickstart %post.  dhclient cannot work 
because CONFIG_FILTER=y is not set in the -BOOT kernel, and pump is not 
available in %post.

Please enable CONFIG_FILTER=y in the -BOOT kernel .config for future RHL and 
RHEL products.  This increases kernel size by roughly 1KB.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHLAS2.1, RHL8, Phoebe public beta 3 + special bits of rawhide

Should probably be in the kernel bucket, assuming the Installer guys don't care
much that the kernel size will grow slightly.

Not enabled in 2.4.20-2.1.27.ent -BOOT kernel (Alpha2).

Dell was given the choice which driver we could drop to make space for this...
Which driver did they pick ?
Comment 4 Larry Troan 2003-07-08 15:46:20 EDT
At last week's meeting Dell said we could drop any driver used uniquely by
another IHV <;-0  
Comment 5 Larry Troan 2003-07-15 14:50:51 EDT
Can we do aanything with this? If not, we need to close the issue.
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2003-07-15 14:54:29 EDT
no; we're still 20kb short instead of having space to spare.
