Comment 1 Brian Brock 2006-09-21 15:31:42 EDT
seems to be between stages 1 and 2

occurs with every pxe / ks.cfg over nfs install that I've attempted.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-21 15:56:44 EDT
Not sure how I wasn't hitting this when I was testing it yesterday, but fixed
Comment 3 Steve Fox 2006-09-22 12:38:19 EDT
I hit this error today when trying to boot the rescue CD.

Comment 5 John Reiser 2006-09-22 16:42:42 EDT
Not fixed.  I agree with Comment #3: booting today's i386 rescue CD (sha1sum
156dcb34b37a2a554e32e980f1dd3609d49dbdfa) I still see the same error.  Rescue
fails to work at all.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 14:17:20 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 9 John Reiser 2008-04-04 23:07:43 EDT
The Rescue CDs (now called 'netinst') have worked for me for all of the Fedora 9
alpha and beta systems (i686, x86_64, PowerPC).
