Can you rename/remove the images directory from
/home/common/ARCHIVES/FC6/GOLD/i386/images/, if images/stage2.img exists we
assume non nfs-iso install.  With just the iso in the dir it should work.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2006-11-01 03:27:36 EST
Can you rename/remove the images directory from
/home/common/ARCHIVES/FC6/GOLD/i386/images/, if images/stage2.img exists we
assume normal nfs install and don't look for nfs-iso install.  

Without images/stage2.img just the iso in the dir it should work.  This change
from FC5 is due to tree layout changes (FC5 doesn't have images/stages2 as
that's in base).  

Jeremy should we change the loader logic to check something in addition
images/stage2 for this or just document that is how we now determine nfs vs nfsiso?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2006-11-01 12:18:25 EST
renamed "/home/common/ARCHIVES/FC6/GOLD/i386/images/" to other name and the
installation worked with no problem at all.

Thanks so much for prompt response.
