Description David Lehman 2006-04-18 13:10:58 EDT
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):
anaconda-10.1.1.13-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from RHEL4 disc1 and askmethod
2. specify a RHEL3 NFS target tree
3. 
  
Actual results:
install will proceed with varying (probably not good) results

Expected results:
installer stops and tells user to match the boot/install media

Additional info:
This is a regression since this scenario would be prevented prior to the
addition of code to grab stage2 from cdrom when possible.

Comment 5 Peter Jones 2007-01-30 14:51:39 EST
Should be fixed in anaconda-10.1.1.55-1 .

(It's wonderful irony that I'm telling you this ;)
