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?
FWIW I am unable to reproduce this bug (I'm typing this from an
NFS-installed RHEL4 WS beta 1).
BTW, my NFS server is a Debian "sarge" box running an unpatched
mainline 18.104.22.168 kernel, configured to serve NFS v2/v3 over TCP/UDP,
but not NFS v4. Just mentioning this in case it's relevant...
Arghh... stupid user error. The directory was not world-readable :-(.
After fixing that it seems to work fine.
