Is anyone else seeing this? -- Re: Bug#261460: Non-DHCP network config step of d-i is broken
Is this problem only on OldWorld PowerMac's? Or am I just the only
person in the world who wants to configure his network interface
without DHCP? If this is happening on i386, it would be a show
Please, somebody, give it a try and let me know I'm not going
crazy. It doesn't take very long to get to the point where this
bug manifests itself, and you don't ever get to the point where you
need to touch your hard disk, so it's easy to check.

The manual (non-dhcp) configuration option of the "config network"
step is broken.
Here is a blow-by-blow account:
1) Boot 2.6 kernel and initrd copied from CD using BootX, with
2) answer questions til we come to main menu topic "Configure the
3) Answer "Auto configure network with DHCP?" with "no"
4) Answer questions til we come to "Is this information
correct?". Since it is correct, answer "yes".
5) This takes us back to the main menu with "Configure the network"
6) Switching to the F2 console, we see (with "ifconfig" and "route")
that the network interface has been configured as we requested.
7) two possibilities:
a) If we just hit "return":
1) We are asked if we want DHCP (again). Going to console F2
shows that the network has been de-configured.
2) we answer "no" (again) to the DHCP question, and we go thru the
same set of questions again. Winding us back at step 5 (again).
b) If we manually (down-arrow key) move to "Choose a mirror", and
hit return, we wind up at step 7a (again)!
Am I doing something wrong?
