Description Michael M. Morrison 2004-12-10 20:21:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: Attempts to install FC3 via NVS from a server running the FC3 distribution fail. Fails regardless of whether the directory is filled with an "install tree" or just the 4 ISO's. The installation window hangs - providing no error indication, you have to consult the background VT's to get further information. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC3 on the server. Download all yum updates. 2. Copy ISOs to export directory, and export it in /etc/exports. 3. Boot FC3 Disc 1 on install client. 4. at prompt, select "linux askmethod" 5. configure ethernet, select server and directory 6. begin install Actual Results: With a directory containing ISOs, the install fails with the error "Unable to find Fedora/base/stage2.img", which is correct - as that file exists in the ISO image. With a directory containing an "install tree" (the files copied from the install CDs) the install also fails (hangs) and the back VT claims that the NFS server has timed out - although the server NFS still appears to be working. Expected Results: The installer should have recognized the ISO images, and installed using them. I am not sure why the NFS server times out, if it really does. Additional info: An FTP install using the same client and server and an "install tree" configuration worked fine.

This works for me here. Do you have the src isos in the same directory?
Comment 2 Michael M. Morrison 2004-12-16 10:31:50 UTC
No, but I did have the FC3-i386-rescuecd.iso and an MD5SUM file in the directory: FC3-i386-disc1.iso FC3-i386-disc3.iso FC3-i386-rescuecd.iso FC3-i386-disc2.iso FC3-i386-disc4.iso MD5SUM
