Description Warren Togami 2009-01-13 21:33:54 UTC
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ltspbr0 Live Server spin has an installed file defining a private bridge.  This bridge runs during LiveCD runtime just fine.  However "Install to Hard Drive" rewrites this file to a nearly blank state removing the IP address and other options needed.

dcantrell said Live Hard Drive install should skip this ifcfg-* rewriting step.
