Description Dan Horák 2020-10-07 09:30:27 UTC
Anaconda used to write the s390x specific details for network interfaces into ifcfg file, but this doesn't happen any more. As a result system boots after installation without networking. I believe it's a relatively recent change, but I lost the history from my test VM (reinstalled, terminal output cleared).

It affects the s390x native network interfaces (qeth), there is no problem with virtio networking under KVM (AFAICT).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 33.25.2-4.fc33

Comment 1 Dan Horák 2020-10-07 09:31:40 UTC
As Radek told me this is an effect of and will require adaptation of ccw_init. Switching to s390utils.

Comment 2 Dan Horák 2020-10-07 10:13:40 UTC
device_cio_free also needs an update

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2020-10-07 10:15:54 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 33-final by Fedora user sharkcz using the blocker tracking app because:

 Without the fix from the bug the freshly installed system will start without networking when a native s390x network adapter (eq. qeth) is used.

Comment 6 Dan Horák 2020-10-07 16:44:57 UTC
What's still missing is handling other options than "layer2" in ccw_init. This would need a real parser for "ini" files, so we can get the whole list of options/variable in a specific section.
