Created this thread to follow up on my blog post as there are some questions unanswered. I will try to get back to this topic myself but meanwhile I just letting others know about what I found as of now. Feel free to contribute.


IMHO: We need to find how networkdevicecheck function from anaconda discovers network cards/interfaces.
Some info from Web and MOS:

Have you found a solution to this issue? I have the exact same problem installing OVMS 3.0.3 on Dell R610/R820 and basically any dell with the Broadcom network cards. I have even installed an intel 10/1000 4pt card to bypass but still fails as it can still see the onboard broadcoms.

any help appreciated.
