Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-26 10:17:10 UTC
I had the following email discussion a long time ago, this was during the
6.2 beta cycle. I just noticed with beta4 that this is still not fixed, and
since there still is no seperate rescue disk bugzilla entry I'm filing this
against anaconda.

Maybe an errata with just text on howto create /etc/services and
/dev/tty, if this is on the floppy image (which I think it is) maybe
even a new image (I don't think this is that important, but if a new
image is needed for something anyways, like some adapters, it might as
well fix this)

And what about a bugzilal entry for the resuce disk, so I can enter
this, so that it will atleast be fixed for 7.0.

Request for separate "rescue disk" bug-bucket is bug number 14861

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2000-07-30 20:55:15 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston gold-release

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-10 22:21:25 UTC
Fixed in RC1.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2000-08-21 09:51:14 UTC
/etc/services has been fixed, but /dev/tty is still a regular file instead of a
char device 5-0.

I don't want to be a smartass, but maybe next time actually try to see if it is
really fixed yourself?

I was able to use ftp to transfer files using the rescue mode in the final 7.0
