[opensuse-factory] Network failure when installing 12.3 RC2

I just installed 12.3 RC2 this afternoon, from the DVD. I use the XFCE desktop.

Yast during installation asked for the details of my network (wifi), but the test failed, and the details box was empty. The configuration was that of ifup mode.

When I finally booted, I could not login as user (xfce). This has an update that corrects it, but I had no network. Had to login as root.

YaST network module said that the configuration was handled by network manager, but there was no applet in sight. I switched to ifup mode, and all the data I had entered during config was there. I accepted, then YaST said that it had to install smpppd, and failed because there was no network.

This smpppd package should have been installed earlier from the DVD, if it is necesary. It is absurd that to configure network you have to install a package that requires network.

Checking, I did have network running, but there was no default route set, so no access to internet. No matter if I clicked to obtain route from dhcp or manually iinYaST, it was ignored.

However, a manual restart of "rcnetwork" succeeded and I got Internet. Then, YaST network module also succeeded to install smpppd, and setup default route as well.

And the update repaired XFCE access as user, too.

Do you want a bugzilla about this?

Several people are reporting very similar issues in the fourm.
