Description Ucender 2000-07-31 14:40:21 EDT
If the RedHat mirror is stored in the root of the anonymous ftp server
(which is quiet uncommon), the installation will hang. The reason is that
the installation script runs the following command on the FTP server: "CWD
". In this case, CWD takes no argument because the mirror is in the root,
but unfortunately, the scripts adds a space after CWD, so the command is
not understood by the FTP server (wu-ftpd-2.6.0-3). Then the scripts loops
indefinitely, and the installation won't happen.

This is a bug in python's ftp module, which we should fix eventually.
