Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16662
OS installation via NFS not working...
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
When attempting an NFS installation, the installer reports No Redhat
installation directory tree found. However, the installation proceeds
properly when using the FTP install method.
Say your NFS server has the Red Hat tree like this:
where i386 contains all of pinstripe.
Then in the installer you need to specify
as the NFS path.
I know this works because its how I do all my testing - its most likely an issue
like the above.
Let me elaborate a bit more. I burned the CD's, Put the CD in the drive of
another Linux box, exported it (/mnt/cdrom), and tried the install. The paths
I provided dirring the install
was /mnt/cdrom, /mnt/cdrom/RedHat, /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS. None of them
worked. This is the same way I installed RH6.2 on the same box, and it worked
fine (entering /mnt/cdrom in the path). I will leave it up to you to determine
if this should be reopened or not.
I have the same problem. Trying to do a NFS install on a CD-less machine. Put
the CD into a RH6.2 box, mounted CD, exported CD. I can mount this cd fine via
nfs on another RH box. Go to install Pinstripe and it says that it doesn't have
a installation directory.
