I'm trying to get Fedora 25 installed on the Hercules s390 emulator (Hercules v3.12), but the install fails because it can't connect to the network and drops into a dracut emergency shell. In the emergency shell if I assign an ip to the dev and set a default route then I can successfully ping other hosts.

Hercules is configured with CTC networking (a point to point interface), where the hosted side uses and the hosting OS uses

I'm using a prm file (see below) to supply the ip option, but while its processed (based on errors I see when I muck it up), networking isn't configured properly. During the install I see the CTC driver is initialized, ctc0 is detected and then renamed to slc700, and that slc700 is connected with the remote side.

Any advice/pointers would be appreciated.
