Description

This test scenario make sure that ksdevice=<interface name> format will handle interface names of the form emN or pci<slot>#<port>. For example passing 'ksdevice=em1' will work without issues.

Setup

Make sure hardware requirements are met.

How To Test

  1. Start the Rawhide instllation by booting into the boot.iso from <here>
  2. In the welcome screen, press TAB to edit the grub command line and append ksdevice=em1 ks=ks.cfg location on network. More information on ks and ksdevice options can be found here. More information on creating a ks.cfg can be found here
  3. Make sure the ks.cfg file specifies the configuration paramters for the network interfaces using the new naming convention, as following
    network --onboot yes --device em1 --bootproto dhcp --ipv6 auto
    network --onboot yes --device pci1#2 --bootproto dhcp --ipv6 auto
    network --onboot no --device pci1+1  --noipv4 --noipv6 --hostname fedora-14-r710
