Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-24 19:43:11 UTC
-nfs install
-dynamic ip
-no dns given by dhcp server, please enter one or leave blank if you don't
have one
-leave blank
-error: invalid dns, back to please enter or leave blank.

So one cannot leave the dns blank, as said in the text.

Is this the graphical or text mode installer (or both)?

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-07-25 14:55:46 UTC
This is in the loader (before entering the nfs path to the install media) so I

To reproduce:
-edit your dhcpd.conf on your dhcp server so that it doesn't give out any dns
servers anymore
-restart dhcpd
-boot bootnet.img
-chooce dhcp
-it now prompts for a DNS saying that this may be left empty (exact message way
too long to reproduce)
-press enter (leave dns empty)
-get: "You entered an invalid IP address."
-press enter
-back at enter dns ip screen
