Description Gilboa Davara 2007-02-13 15:08:22 UTC
Description of problem: In previous versions of RH/Fedora it was possible to select which network card will be used for network installation during the "start networking" phase. In F7, I'm forced to configure all the network cards. (Either using DHCP or by assigning a static IP address) Gilboa

Can you give more details? You can still select the network interface in stage1 if you are doing a network-based install. You will then only configure that interface to fetch the stage2 image. In stage2, it's different code that exists to configure the NICs for post-install use. Are you doing a text mode or graphical mode install (please say graphical)?

My mistake. - Stage I. - Rescue mode. - VMWare machine booting from an ISO image. - Gilboa

Moving to 'devel' as discussed on https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2007-March/msg00095.html.
Comment 4 David Cantrell 2007-03-12 20:23:18 UTC
This has been fixed in rawhide in the text mode installer frontend. In cases where you only have one NIC, anaconda will ask if you want to configure that NIC (yes/no). With more than one NIC, you are presented with a list box and can configure as many of the found NICs as you want. Stay at this dialog box as long as you want. When you press OK, you advance to the next stage in the installer.
