I've run preupgrade to download packages, etc. At some point, there
was a msg stating that there was no room for a boot image (i

a wired network connection. I do, so I continued.

However, upon rebooting, I'm seeing "Waiting for NetworkManager to configure eth0 ..." followed by, "There was an error configuring your network interface."

I found this:
preupgrade will not work with static ips

Indeed, it seemed strange that I wasn't given the option to configure the network.

I'm going to try what this comment suggests:

Asked the anaconda guys; F10 anaconda stage1 defaults to DHCP if you use a
kickstart (which preupgrade does) and you fail to specify network options.

You can work around by either removing the 'ks=XX' param or adding a "network
--bootproto=static ..." command to /boot/upgrade/ks.cfg. Check
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart for details on the "network"

But I'm wondering *when* I can edit that. If I run preupgrade again, how do I edit that file before rebooting if it's preupgrade that generates the file? Presumably, the file is written to after the user clicks "reboot".
