Description Michael M. Morrison 2004-12-10 20:21:31 UTC

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

Marking as a duplicate of a bug filed later because the later one has a lot of
useful debugging output attached to it.  Thanks for the report.
