Description Matthew Miller 2003-02-13 22:53:40 UTC
This one is driving me crazy. If I use "linux method=ftp://myserver/mypath ip=22.214.171.124 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=126.96.36.199 dns=188.8.131.52" as my boot parameters, anaconda ought to happily take all this and properly configure the network. (Note to Jeremy Katz -- this is independent of my wish to be able to just specify dns without ip. *grin*) Instead, it goes to reverse-lookup the name and fails, because the network isn't there. On vt 4, I see: "loader: failed to set up default route: Network is unreachable". I tried to debug this a bit, but I'm stumped. If I change setupNetworkDeviceConfig to not set cfg->preset to 1, the newt form comes up with all the info I gave properly filled out, and *everything works perfectly when I say okay*. As far as I can tell, the only non-newt-gui difference between the two code paths is that fillInIpInfo gets called in the second case but not the first. I thought -- hmm, maybe broadcast isn't getting set. But I added a call to fillInIpInfo(cfg) right after "doing kickstart... setting it up", and it doesn't fix things. So I'm missing something here. But what?

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed, so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists, please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
