Description Knut Alejandro Anderssen González 2019-02-27 15:51:24 UTC
There are some issues during the network proposal configuration that affects the installation and selection of packages:

1.- Although the proposal shows that the default backend is NetworkManager, the list of resolvables is not updated correctly


The list is updated when switching between backends, but if the package is not added by a specific pattern or role, then the backend is not used at all as we can see in the test. Wicked service is also not activated which means no network after the installation

In SLE, wicked is usually the default and part of the proposal packages list so not detected issues there.

2.- If we go back & forth modifying the current system role, the new default for the network backend is ignored as it has been already initialized.
