Description of problem:
After an error loading a file (such as caused by bug 101625), you have to reboot
the system in order to specify a new URL for the HTTP fetchery, rather than just
going [Back] and giving a new site.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Severn beta 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start HTTP install
2. Get error
Actual Results: Just an [OK] dialog (and it's not OK!).
Expected Results: Ask me if I'd like to go [Back] and pick a new method or
Bug 101625 refers to a problem rebooting the system - is that the bug you meant
No, quite not. I meant bug 101265, sorry.
If there are problems with the URL specified in stage 2 (the later part of the
install) I do not see us adding support for prompting for a new site.
If the loader (initial bootstrap program) is unable to find the stage 2 image at
the URL specified there we do prompt for a new site.
The site selected has to have a internally consistent set of installation files
in the directory layout expected.
