Re: Kickstart doesn't?

Howdy all,

I'm netbooting into the Fedora (test 1.90) installer, and the installer is having a hard time aquiring a lease from my DHCP server (ISC DHCP version whatever's-current-in-redhat-9). I see the requests going out, an the following errors in the syslog on the DHCP server:

Feb 27 19:54:38 flowers dhcpd: fallback_discard: Resource temporarily unavailable

What's more:

- The PXE loader (pxelinux) is able to aquire a lease w/o a problem, and
- The second stage installer is also able to aquire a lease.

This system is using a 3Com 3C905C-TXM NIC.

I have a working 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 74)

I did have a rev B card that was troublesome and no longer have the card.

By my thoughts, it is something other than the NIC. I believe it only effected revs before C.


I recall seeing a similar issue discussed in the archives, but I'm unable to search the archives at the moment ("redhat.com is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later."). Has anyone else run into this problem?
