The first attempt to automatically configure a network interface
through DHCP fails. sysinst asks if you want to configure through
DHCP; you answer yes, and then you get immediately another screen
with configuration results (it is impossible, dhclient hasn't had
enough time to gather the information). For some reason, the
gateway and DNS server appear properly, both set to 192.168.1.1
(but I guess they are some default), because everything else is
When sysinst asks you if the configuration is ok, you answer no
and then answer yes again to the DHCP question. This time, you can
see how dhclient is started, and how it fetches the information
(it needs several seconds now). Then, everything is ok.
This happens both with 1.6M installation disks and 1.6.1_RC1.
As described above.
