Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18948
Incorrect bootnet.img on RedHat mirror
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:16 EDT
The bootnet.img file at ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/redhat/redhat-7.0/i386/en/images/
is incorrect. Apparently it is an exact copy of boot.img in the same directory.
I was able to do an FTP-based install by using the bootnet.img file from
ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/redhat/redhat-7.0/i386/en/images/sv/ instead. It appears
that this is a usable bootnet.img file; as soon as the initial welcome page (in Swedish) had
timed out I was able to proceed with an English-speaking install.
hmmm ... the bootnet.img site from that directory seems to be the proper version
now ... the md5sum is proper ... maybe the mirror site corrected the problem ...
thanks for your report!
I think that the problem is still there?
In the directory
the boot.img and bootnet.img files are identical. Thus in this directory there
is no usable image file for network boot.
For comparison, in the directory
the files boot.img and bootnet.img are different.
