Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-08-23 13:46:55 UTC
We've done all sorts of HTTP-based installs and not found anything like this...
can you please provide what package-set you chose to install, whether or not you
selected any indivdual packages, etc.  A few more details of your installation
setup would be most helpful.  Thanks!

Comment 2 Alfonso Espitia 2000-08-23 13:59:41 UTC
I don't exactly remember which packages I tried to install, however, i was trying to get the install in under 700 megs.  I was using the sourceforge HTTP 
site.  apparently the install required me to put in the IP address, and wouldn't take the CNAME.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-09 19:50:25 UTC
We are unable to reproduce this issue. Please try the 7.0 final release and
hopefully it will work better.
