Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9916
network --bootproto static does not work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I have tried Kickstart with network --bootproto static option but it still
sends the BOOTP requests which obviously fail.
The Kickstart-HOWTO file recommends using network --static but it doesn't
I have also a suggestion: it would be nice if Kickstart would ask for the
IP number if the static configuration was requested but no IP number was
Were was the kickstart file located? On the boot diskette or on the network?
What command line did you pass?
I did some more tests and I admit network --bootproto static works after all and
I withdraw this part (stupid me, have forgotten to pass the ks=floppy
parameter). My comments about the documentation inconsistency remain valid.
Anyway, the installation fails at xconfig:
line 271, in write file xf86config.py
line 387, in mouseSection
AttributeError: 'None' object has no attribute info.
Relevant parts of my kickstart file are following:
xconfig --server SVGA --monitor "IBM 6549 G94 & G96"
Am I doing a silly mistake?
Both of these issues are resolved in later builds of the installer. Will be
fixed in the next release.
