From: Donald Allen <donald...@gmail.com> To: voidlinux <void...@googlegroups.com> Subject: Network setup twice during void installation? Date: Wed, 16 Sep 2015 05:38:29 -0700 (PDT) [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) [-- Attachment #1.1: Type: text/plain, Size: 954 bytes --] Running void-installer, one of the early items is 'Network'. I dutifully set up the network (in the install I just did, I set up the ethernet interface with a static IP address). The next step in the install relates to where the installation files are coming from (I've forgotten the exact wording in the menu). When you select that, you have two options: local and network. If you select 'network' it asks you to set up the network again. As an experiment, as this point I set it up to use dhcp, to see if the second setup over-rode the first. It does, as evidenced by the system coming up post-install with an assigned IP address, rather than the static address I'd previously specified. What is going on here? On the face of it, asking twice for the network setup makes no sense and I have not yet found any documentation explaining what the installer thinks it's doing. Is there a sensible rationale for this or is it a bug? /Don Allen [-- Attachment #1.2: Type: text/html, Size: 1003 bytes --]
