Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189262
grabbing stage2.img from boot cd bypasses tree timestamp check
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
The new code in anaconda-10 that grabs stage2.img from cdrom if possible
prevents the timestamp checking code from being effective at preventing install
media mismatches. If the boot media contains RedHat/base/stage2.img (like full
disc1), the user specifies askmethod, and the NFS/URL tree is not matched with
the booted installer, it will not be detected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from RHEL4 disc1 and askmethod
2. specify a RHEL3 NFS target tree
install will proceed with varying (probably not good) results
installer stops and tells user to match the boot/install media
This is a regression since this scenario would be prevented prior to the
addition of code to grab stage2 from cdrom when possible.
