Re: [fedora-virt] how can i verify that HW extensions are being used?

Are you testing a full real DVD or just a boot.iso burned to a DVD?

If it's just a boot.iso, that would explain what you're seeing - there are no packages on it so anaconda will use a network source in that case. That would explain booting off a DVD and then seeing lots of network activity.

However if you're using a fullsize however many gig DVD with a Packages/ directory and all that, then there appears to be a bug here. We'd need to check the log files to find out what's going on. If that's the case, could you please open a bugzilla against anaconda and attach the logs?

So, do you still want bug reports on this?

It also acts differently than a normal Fedora 11 beta install on

AND I see essentially zero activity on the DVD drive on the server.

  good lord, he's right.  at the moment, during a fresh install, my
network is going bananas with traffic to/from
fedora.mirror.iweb.ca.  the install DVD isn't being used.  what's up
with *that*?
