Description Robert Scheck 2004-05-06 11:05:20 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to start a rescue system, where the image is used from an FTP
server. Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1 U3 is used. Everything is 
correct (boot image, netstg1, FTP server etc).

--- snipp ---
Running anaconda - please wait...
Traceback (innermost last):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. linux rescue console=ttyS0
2. enter network data
3. enter FTP information
4. get the error from above
Actual results:
I don't have this problem with RHAS 2.1 Q2's boot image/netstg1.

Expected results:
Using the rescue system from RHAS 2.1 U3 without a crash ;-)
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-06 14:39:55 EDT
Does this happen with U4?
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-05-26 05:24:27 EDT
Is U4 officially released? 
So we've got only RHEL2.1AS-ia64-U4-re0416.RC.0-ia64-disc?.iso here...
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-26 10:56:14 EDT
It's been released for about a month now on RHN
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-04 08:58:33 EST
Closing due to inactivity.  Please reopen this bug if you have further
information to add to the report.
Comment 5 Robert Scheck 2004-11-04 09:22:22 EST
Sorry, I verified the working yesterday with U4 / U5-RC, so U4 does it 
for me :)
