Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16204
[net] Bad behavior if FTP account has cdrom-dir as home
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
When using FTP install and choosing a FTP account having /mnt/cdrom as it
home it's difficulty to enter the correct "Red Hat directory":
0. Create FTP account `cdrom' having /mnt/cdrom as it home and mount CD1
1. Install from bootnet.img
2. Choose FTP install
3. Try to choose "Red Hat directory":
- leaving path empty doesn't work ("You must enter a directory")
- '/' results in "Failed to retrieve: //RedHat/base/netstg1.img: File
not found on server"
It's not trivially to find the correct input '.' for 3)...
Couldn't reproduce this, but I suspect it depends on the ftp server you're
using. I put a workaround in anaconda to convert / to /. internally, which
should fix this in all cases.
