Description Enrico Scholz 2000-08-14 23:47:16 UTC
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)...

Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-08-16 12:40:02 UTC
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.
