installer attempts to download package files even without network connectoin

Bug #95994 reported by Matthew Garrett on 2007-03-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Feisty beta: despite not selecting anything in Network Manager, my resolv.conf contains valid entries and eth0 (the wired interface) has a route to without a gateway. As a result, ubiquity appears to believe that it has network access and so attempts to download language packs. I'm not sure what's actually causing this behaviour, but it's clearly not correct...

The bug closure was clearly bogus, but I think this has actually been fixed; in hardy and intrepid we fixed quite a few cases of excessive delays during installation when network access was apparently configured but in fact not really working.

Changed in ubiquity:
status: Invalid → Fix Released
