Description Jos Vos 2004-09-27 21:32:19 UTC
Description of problem:
When using NFS install, using a directory with ISO's does not work, it
just complains that it can't find a base/... file. Using NFS with an
extracted tree does work.

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

What exactly is in the directory?  What messages are there on tty3?

Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2004-09-29 11:26:27 UTC
FWIW I am unable to reproduce this bug (I'm typing this from an
NFS-installed RHEL4 WS beta 1).

Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2004-09-29 11:27:54 UTC
BTW, my NFS server is a Debian "sarge" box running an unpatched
mainline kernel, configured to serve NFS v2/v3 over TCP/UDP,
but not NFS v4. Just mentioning this in case it's relevant...

Comment 4 Jos Vos 2004-10-04 09:18:11 UTC
Arghh... stupid user error.  The directory was not world-readable :-(.
After fixing that it seems to work fine.
