Default F9 installation issues

On May 4, 2008, at 12:24 PM, Gerry Reno wrote:

I just had another new unhandled exception occur during
installation. And the bug handler does not work. When you try to
save to disk all you see is a weird thin line in the dropdown and
when you try to save it using the network it says it cannot do it
network unreachable. So I switched over to console and I can see the
install log but I cannot send it over the network because it says
network unreachable. Is there any way to get networking working in
the console during the anaconda install?


sure - you can use ifconfig manually or run 'pump' to do DHCP
autoconfiguration.

Thanks Will. ifconfig worked although it complains about cannot find
/etc/network/interfaces.


I attached the anaconda.log showing this unhandled exception to the
installer bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=443451

Default F9 installation issues

Well, I hacked my way through lots of installer bugs to an install
finally. Still does not look like all the files are there because rescue
can't find a whole system to mount under /mnt/sysimage. But it only
takes a few files to mess that up.


Anyway, I asked for static network address and I checked ifcfg-eth0 and
it is static but I can only get a dhcp assignment. I restarted the
network and same thing, it pulls a dhcp ip. I went into admin/network
and it's all static in there. So is there something different in f9
about getting a static ip?

Well, after trying about 10 times to edit ifcfg-eth0 and restart
network, I finally get something.

RTNETLINK: File exists.
Error adding 192.168.1.15 for eth0.
but it seems to have worked.

I check ifconfig and now the address is static. So that was weird.

Now when I restart the network this same error message occurs. And I
hate error messages like that... what damn file exists? Is it too much
to ask to print the filename in the error message?
