Description of problem:
I did a http install with core 6 test 1 and anaconda crashes after I filled in 
the static ip and subnetmask. I get a signal 6 and then the shutdown messages 
(like unmounting file systems etc.) are all over the (blue) screen and it 
tells me to reboot. I have to hold down the laptops on/off button for 4 
seconds before it shuts down.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download vmlinuz and initrd for core 6 test 1, reboot into these
2. Select http install
3. Enter static ip and subnetmask
Actual results:

Expected results:
Fetch base2.img etc. and continue with install.

Additional info:
FTP does work on same (local) server.

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-08-08 13:13:05 UTC
Please provide the stack trace messages and describe what values you typed in
the network configuration screen.

Turns out this is the same as a few of the other bugzilla bugs where there's a
crash when attempting an http or ftp based installation.  This is triggered when
the directory path that is entered is not preceeded with a /
