Description of problem:
When attempting a kickstart build using the http build method, the boot CD
loader fails to download the ks.cfg file from a Microsoft IIS6 Web server. An
Apache Web Server works OK.
A network trace shows that the HTTP GET string is terminated with a \t\n when
it should probably be \r\n.
Line 445 in the Anaconda loader source file ftp.c, was changed so that the HTTP
GET string was terminated with \r\n and then recompiled.
After including the new loader binary into the initrd.img on the boot CD, we
were able to download files from the IIS server and the build completed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create boot CD from isolinux on install CD's
2.Publish ks.cfg and build tree on Microsoft IIS 6 Web Server
3.Attempt a kickstart build
Good catch, fixed in CVS
This is also a problem with fedora core 1 and up2date.
Jason: If the problem you are seeing is with up2date, then you should
file a bug against up2date.
