Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176300
erronous example or description in driver media documentation
Last modified: 2013-06-17 01:27:37 EDT
This documentation snippet doesn't make sense:
The example doesn't match the description. From the description it sounds like the installer will find
the drive and ask which disk image on the drive to use, but the example suggests treating the USB drive
as a floppy.
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux supports using a USB pen drive as a way to add driver images during the
installation process. The best way to do this is to mount the USB pen drive and copy the desired
driverdisk.img onto the USB pen drive. For example:
dd if=driverdisk.img of=/dev/sda
You are then prompted during the installation to select the partition and specify the file to be used."
Removing automation notification
Moving to Don
corrected in source, removed "You are prompted during the installation..." and
clarified /dev/sda to refer to device ID of USB pen drive. setting as MODIFIED.
need to verify this for firstname.lastname@example.org
