NetworkManager is starting up "after" ubiquity in only-ubiquity mode

Bug #277302 reported by Mario Limonciello on 2008-10-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager (Ubuntu)
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Currently the NetworkManager init script happens during runlevels with priority 30. Ubiquity's happens at 29. Because of this, only-ubiquity and automatic-ubiquity will fail to have network connectivity.
The side effect of this is that the update at the end of ubiquity doesn't actually get performed.

The proposed runlevel priority would then be 28. This ensures that ubiquity will come after Network Manager.

I've linked a bzr branch to this bug. I've tested the attached changes in a custom built live CD with the network manager updated package included. I've verified that (wired) network is now available in only-ubiquity.

I agree (Mario and I talked about this on IRC beforehand).
