Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174217
Can't install over FTP. No hdlist
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
When installing over FTP, Anaconda ask for a file Fedora/base/hdlist
This file is not shipped on the 5 disks, and is required to install over FTP.
Nothing should be requiring an hdlist anymore -- can you switch to tty2 and grab
/tmp/anaconda.log and attach it here?
I have just tried again, and sadly can't I switch to tty2. Nothing happens when
I press Ctrl+Alt+F2.
For some reason it is still asking for it, so "grep -R hdlist *" in the anaconda
source most return something.
Just to confirm that I see the same thing attempting an http install.
tty2 is also blank for me.
Booting using cd1 and used linux askmethod
I'm going to try cd1 with linux askmethod debug
and look for interesting crap on tty3
and i'm going to try using the boot.iso to do the network install.
I'll report back with results to this bug.
Okay, I'm pretty sure I see what's causing this. Should be fixed in CVS
Will I be able to download a file/package to replace on disc1, or will I have to
wait for test2?
If you just touch Fedora/base/hdlist in your tree, it'll let you continue
installing for test1. Actually testing the fix will need to wait until there's
a new anaconda built and then new CD1s, etc.
Touching hdlist doesn't work for me. Anaconda won't proceed.
/mnt/userspace/linux/fc51t/file/Fedora/base$ ll hdlist
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Nov 27 00:35 hdlist
touching hdlist works for me. Obviously since it was a mounted .iso file, I had
to mount elsewhere, copy the contents of iso into my disc1 directory, and then
touch (I happened to use nautilus - new file to do this). This satisfies the
needs of anaconda trying to find disc1/Fedora/base/hdlist, and the installer
