Incorrect FTP parameters can't be corrected once the installation has beginned
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
During an installation in text mode, incorrect FTP parameters can't be corrected
once the installation has beginned.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot on the first cd, choose "fedora text askmethod"
2. choose FTP
3. use wrong parameters
the local media (cdrom) is used.
The installation aborts and you have to reboot the computer and restart
Anaconda should let you choose another FTP or correct the parameters.
What do you mean by wrong parameters? Please provide /tmp/anaconda.log and
/tmp/syslog so we can diagnose this issue.
If you enter a wrong FTP location, Anaconda will fail and won't let you choose
another FTP or correct the FTP parameters.
I can confirm this. The installer just uses local media (disc 1) and then fails
after root password input
This has been fixed in rawhide. If you enter invalid parameters, the installers
takes you back to the FTP parameter screen to try again.
