Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122634
Rescue system crashes at getting image "netstg1.img" over FTP
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
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).

Running anaconda - please wait...

Steps to Reproduce:
1. linux rescue console=ttyS0
2. enter network data
3. enter FTP information
4. get the error from above
I don't have this problem with RHAS 2.1 Q2's boot image/netstg1.
Using the rescue system from RHAS 2.1 U3 without a crash ;-)
Does this happen with U4?
Is U4 officially released?
So we've got only RHEL2.1AS-ia64-U4-re0416.RC.0-ia64-disc?.iso here...
It's been released for about a month now on RHN
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen this bug if you have further
information to add to the report.
Sorry, I verified the working yesterday with U4 / U5-RC, so U4 does it
for me :)
