Description Matt Domsch 2003-03-14 16:55:28 UTC
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

FROM ISSUE TRACKER... Event posted 04-15-2003 12:03am by mdomsch with duration of 0.00 Should probably be in the kernel bucket, assuming the Installer guys don't care much that the kernel size will grow slightly.

ALSO AFFECTS TAROON... Event posted 04-28-2003 12:59pm by mdomsch with duration of 0.00 Not enabled in 2.4.20-2.1.27.ent -BOOT kernel (Alpha2).
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-07-01 08:00:07 UTC
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 19:46:20 UTC
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 18:50:51 UTC
Can we do aanything with this? If not, we need to close the issue.
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2003-07-15 18:54:29 UTC
no; we're still 20kb short instead of having space to spare.
