Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

I was thinking that the beta freeze is not yet implemented.

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

I may give a quick test today or tonight. In theory, the not creating /etc/sysconfig/network and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<interface> is supposed to get fixed.

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

Looks like DVD isos are busted - http://lists.fedoraproject.org/piper...er/110564.html

Live images might be O.K. - http://lists.fedoraproject.org/piper...er/110569.html

I have not tried it yet though .. Will try tonight.

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

smr54, also make sure to check to be sure that /etc/sysconfig/i18n gets created correctly as well. That caused a few glitches by it not being created correctly on my Alpha install. Make sure it sets the language correctly. (sets it to a language with locality)

I will probably be grabbing the beta TC (whichever is the latest) in in the next week or so and see if some of my issues have been fixed as well.

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

Well, I installed it. Wasn't able to boot though, hung at reached multi-user mode.

So, booted in single user (this is on a VM) and looked, and the files are now there. i18n also set the language.

Of course, the not booting save for single user mode is an issue. This is a minimal install, done from the netinstall iso.

Yes. Looks like quite a few items are fixed. I installed the system using a XFCE live CD 32-bit on a VM. I have not yet tested the 64-bit yet.

Here is some information that would be pleasing

PHP Code:
[test@localhost Desktop]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n
LANG
="en.UTF-8" 
PHP Code:
[test@localhost Desktop]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network
# Generated by anaconda
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME
=localhost.localdomain
NTPSERVERARGS
=iburst 
Code:
[test@localhost Desktop]$ ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

ifcfg-lo     ifdown-isdn    ifup-aliases  ifup-plip    ifup-wireless
ifcfg-p2p1   ifdown-post    ifup-bnep     ifup-plusb   init.ipv6-global
ifdown       ifdown-ppp     ifup-eth      ifup-post    network-functions
ifdown-bnep  ifdown-routes  ifup-ippp     ifup-ppp     network-functions-ipv6
ifdown-eth   ifdown-sit     ifup-ipv6     ifup-routes
ifdown-ippp  ifdown-tunnel  ifup-ipx      ifup-sit
ifdown-ipv6  ifup           ifup-isdn     ifup-tunnel

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

Seeing your /etc/sysconfig/network file reminded me. Can you change the hostname in the installer? That was another issue I ran into with the Alpha.

Another was not being able to tell it your hardware clock was UTC or Local time, but I was told that's by design, so I'm not expecting that big one to be changed. I just have to modify manually after the install since all of my system clocks are set UTC, and F18 defaulted it to Local.

Nope! I was thinking about that too when I set about installing. There was no option to change the hostname anywhere in the live CD installer at least.

And oh yeah, time. I forgot about this. Let me check.

Re: BetaTest Cadidates Available

By golly, so it does. Surprising, but I guess they figure that the people who dual boot with Windows need it.
