Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193738
kernel/stage2 mismatch message unhelpful
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
Description of problem:
If the kernel and the stage2 image doesn't match anaconda gives the unhelpful message "The Fedora
Core installation tree in that directory does not seem to match your boot media".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to do a net install with the wrong stage2 image
Anaconda gives an unhelpful message.
Anaconda would give the version/whatever information from the boot media and the version/whatever
information from the stage2 image so the user has a chance of figuring out what's wrong.
Unfortunately, the mismatch is purely based on timestamps squirrelled away in
various files. There's not really any better information that can be given.
Would it be possible to squirrel away more useful "marks" in the various files to use for display? :-)
