Sorry about that :-/ > You seem to indicate that you need to use IPv4 to access the nameserver? Yes, I actually was given only static IPv4 parameters to connect the network (and no DHCPv4 server is available on it). > Is the real failure you report that it did not configure IPv4 correctly? > I.e. didn't show a prompt and continued without it? Well yes, at least I don't mind it tries to probe for DHCPv (that makes sense) but if it fails like it seems to do here, shouldn't it propose a manual setup? In that case, I would have continue with a static IPv4 configuration and the installation. I managed to get the manual setup menus, by changing the priority of the installer, also undoing the IPv6 (if I remember correctly) and so on but that's not straightforward. Also when it asks for the nameserver in the ncurses gui, how am I supposed to know that it's trying to do an IPv6 setup ? (tell me if I'm wrong, but given the ip output, it seems it was in the middle of an IPv6 setup after having failed the IPv4 dhcp probing and thus expecting an IPv6 nameserver) > Is a DHCPv4 server > on the network where you tried this? Because the DHCP client seems to be > unable to acquire an address. There is no DHCPv4 server on this network. So the installer correctly failed that part of the setup. > Does an IPv6 nameserver work? (Assuming your 6to4 connectivity actually works.) I don't know, I've not been provided that information, only IPv4 static configuration parameters. Does the fact that SLAAC autoconfiguration worked means that there is some IPv6 network available at some point ? Also, I guess that the installer was expecting an IPv6 nameserver because it did SLAAC autoconfiguration after failing DHCPv4. Do you confirm that ? If so, shouldn't the installer gui let the user know for which kind of network setup it asks a parameter (such as the nameserver) ? > Also it'd be helpful to see "ip -6 route" and "ip route".
