I know that the existing behaviour throws a *lot* of people for a loop, it pops up on IRC and email lists occasionally, because, as you say, it's non-standard behaviour.
In fact, I recently had to work around this behaviour by patching kickstart.py.
Here' s my patch on 188.8.131.52, I know there's a newer version, I'm just pulling down changes on the anaconda master branch now, I'll see if I can come up with a patch against the master.

One basic assumption we have today is that a kickstart file without a network line implies DHCP. In all other cases, a kickstart file without some piece of information implies stop and ask. How many people will complain if I change the network line to behave like all others for F12 and RHEL6? This gets rid of the need to port network --bootproto=query from RHEL5 to Rawhide since it would then be the default behavior. - Chris _______________________________________________ Anaconda-devel-list mailing list Anaconda-devel-list redhat com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/anaconda-devel-list
