RFE: allow more format choices for various installs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:53 EST
Description of problem:
I keep a copy of rawhide on disc. To test the rc trees, I figured
I'd save time and bandwidth by just syncing it to the rc1 tree, then
booting off a copy of the rc rescue cd to do a local disk install...
But NOOOOO, it had to have copies of the ISO images on disc. A tree
with all the packages wasn't good enough for it.
Ok, whatever. So I try an http install, and point it to the iso/
directory on testing.fedora, since it just said it wanted iso
But NOOOOO, now it wants a tree with the packages, instead of iso
I did switch it to the os/ directory and the http install then worked
fine. But in case it's not blatantly obvious where I'm headed here,
I think either format of the data (isos or package tree) should work
with any retrieval method the installer supports.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-10.1.0.0-1 as of this writing.
ISOs are preferred in almost all cases, but aren't usable for HTTP/FTP
installs as I can't loopback mount an ISO via FTP/HTTP.
