Description Brent Nordquist 2003-04-16 07:12:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Mounted the rescuecd.iso image on my HTTP server, booted with the RHL 9 diskette
using "linux rescue", and told it the rescue image was on HTTP.  It's trying to
find "RedHat/base/netstg2.img" when on the rescue CD image it's "stage2.img".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux 9

How reproducible:
Consistently

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -o ro,loop=/dev/loop14 -t iso9660
/export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/en/iso/i386/rescuecd.iso /export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue
2. (boot RHL 9 floppy)
3. "linux rescue"
4. choose HTTP and network parameters
5. on "HTTP Setup" dialog enter web site name and "Red Hat directory:
redhat/9/rescue"
    
Actual results:
[Wed Apr 16 05:57:45 2003] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] File does not exist:
/export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue/RedHat/base/updates.img
[Wed Apr 16 05:57:45 2003] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] File does not exist:
/export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue/disc1
[Wed Apr 16 05:57:45 2003] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] File does not exist:
/export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue/RedHat/base/netstg2.img
[Wed Apr 16 05:57:45 2003] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] File does not exist:
/export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue/disc1

Expected results:
Should have found /export/ftp/pub/redhat/9/rescue/RedHat/base/stage2.img (which
is present).

Closing bugs for old packages that no longer have a maintainer.
