#11534 new defect

11.3.1 disables network if interface missing on first boot

Reported by: wad Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 11.3.1
Component: olpc-utils Version: not specified
Keywords: XO-1.75, XO-3, WLAN Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Deployments affected: Action Needed: diagnose
Verified: no

Description

After a fresh install of an 11.3.1 based system (os17, in my case), if the WLAN device is not present on the first boot, networking is permanently disabled.

Inspection shows that the /etc/sysconfig/network file is not generated. On future boots (even with a WLAN card present), the absence of that file causes NetworkManager to fail to start.

As a workaround, execute the following command as root, then reboot

  rm /.olpc-configured

This issue is fixed in OS 12.1.0.
