Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188198
http installer doesn't follow 301 status
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
If you accidentally say install from:
...then anaconda will start requesting URLs like:
...and-httpd responds to these with a 301, telling the http client to goto:
...anaconda never requests the new URLs, instead just failing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever comes with FC5
The http client in the loader is very minimal. Chris was looking at some
options for improving it.
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda (and therefore FC6).
