Description Phillip Sorensen 2003-11-10 16:32:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
The default pxelinx configuration file in the pxelinux.cfg/default
file adds "" to the path strings for both the kernel and initrd
locaations.  The config files created by pxeboot.py are correct.

For example the following lines are created in the default file:

label 2
  kernel "fedora-1-install"/vmlinuz
  append initrd="fedora-1-install"/initrd.img ramdisk_size=10000

This causes an error in pxelinux.  It should be:

label 2
  kernel fedora-1-install/vmlinuz
  append initrd=fedora-1-install/initrd.img ramdisk_size=10000

The code that generates this file is the OSList.saveOSList methos in
pxeos.py.  I will attach the brief patch file that fixes this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add or Modify a "Network Installation" with pxeos or the
redhat-config-netboot gui.

Yes, this was a failed attempt to allow spaces within the name of the
Seems to work on some machines and not on others.  I have removed them
and now will require no spaces.  redhat-config-netboot-0.1.2-2 should
be in rawhide shortly.
