Description rob 1999-06-25 19:02:44 UTC
When doing a RH6.0 install on an AlphaServer2100 the
installation recognizes the tulip device and prompts
for various IP configuration stuff such as IP address
of name server and therefore has reason to prepare the
/etc/resolv.conf file, but it gives an error on the
console saying cannot open %s/%s        which indicates
a few problems, one of which is probably not specifying
the installation root top of the tree, and incorrect
printf usage in the error message display itself.

I get this error everytime I install too, however, it still writes
the /etc/resolv.conf correctly, so it's not that bad a problem, but
it does "look bad" for RedHat.

Issue is resolved in the current release of the installer.
