Description Glenn Mills 2003-10-30 01:01:02 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0; TESIEAK6a)

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):

How reproducible:

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 
Comment 2 Jason 2004-02-10 19:49:24 EST
This is also a problem with fedora core 1 and up2date.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-04-16 17:55:28 EDT
Jason: If the problem you are seeing is with up2date, then you should
file a bug against up2date.
