Description David Woodhouse 2007-04-15 00:01:15 UTC
When X fails to start, I get offered VNC. But the network isn't brought up first.

Comment 1 David Cantrell 2007-04-20 20:12:10 UTC
We call getLinkStatus in _isys which returns 1 for having a link, 0 for not
having a link, and -1 for unknown state.  In, we return that value to
the caller.  In in hasActiveNetDev(), we say:

if isys.getLinkStatus(dev):
    return True

Hahahaha....we're dumb sometimes.

Committed fix to rawhide.
