12.04 Snapshot 28755: As far as I got
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:47:34 pm »
Afraid my core has finally given up its motherboard or PSU.... sadly in the middle of testing the latest snapshot of 1204. so until I get those sorted, I can't be of further help.

However, just to report back--

It may be just me, but I had the issue again of no internet during install. Right at the beginning when the system checks if there is sufficient hard drive space and internet. Again, I quit the installation and allowed the desktop to come up and then checked for the problem.

This time it wasn't DNS (like last time) but was rather that the interfaces (NICs) weren't configured at all. ifconfig only showed l0 interface.

ifconfig -a showed all 3 so I edit /etc/network/interfaces and added a line for eth0 and then brought eth0 up. Thereafter I was able to run the install from the desktop and, as far as I got, things all looked good.
Code: [Select]
lines added to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface eth0
auto eth0 inet dhcp

bring eth0 up:
ifup eth0

Hope this helps someone if it wasn't a problem restricted to my hardware.

Hi Jamo,

I can report the same during the Installation process - no "is connected to the internet".

However, my eth0 and eth1 came up properly.

Sorry to hear about your mobo/psu.

Cheers.

Whoops - I've just found out the "no internet connection" during the installer is how it is supposed to be.

So no-one panic or follow my hastily added fix above please.

Hi,

You couldn't swap interfaces in wedadmin>Adanced>Network>Network Settings anyway because it reports "No record in Device_DeviceData for Network Interfaces".

I found an error in order of some setup functions that has been there forever, not even sure how networking has been working at all on 1204 installs.  But it has been fixed (fingers crossed).  Next snap will have the changes.  Thanks for testing guys!

Hi,

On the Mar.1/14 28786.iso release during the Installation process - no "is connected to the internet".

However, my eth0 and eth1 came up properly.

Cheers

This is normal.  The ubiquity installer will tell you that you are not connected to the internet.  And likely it is not.  That is fine and not a bug.  I need to figure out a way to remove that ubiquity screen so people are not confused by it.
