Description Need Real Name 2000-12-01 15:39:35 UTC
The bootnet image which was created from redhat7 does not allow nfs mounts

However when using redhat 7 cd this problem is cured.

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2000-12-01 16:27:32 UTC
On further testing the nfs did not work on the cdrom, this may be due to the
fact that the image used is boot.img to boot from cd. Can anyone confirm this.

One of the reasons we were looking at redhat7 was to improve out remote builds
to include multiple disk ide which will be dual boot NT/linux.

Comment 2 David R. Linn 2000-12-05 00:13:58 UTC
I too able unable to install using NFS and the bootnet.img from RH7.0.  The
installer reports
"I could not mount that directory from the server" even though the server shows
that the mount
RPC succeeded.

Server is Solaris 7, Sun Ultra 5; client is Gateway 2000 G6-300XL; this same
combo works fine
with the RH 6.2 distribution and bootnet.img.

Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-12-06 12:55:33 UTC
This has nothing to do with the mount package, reassigning

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-12-06 15:43:48 UTC
Passing to QA to reproduce.

Comment 5 panu.matilainen 2000-12-11 13:07:57 UTC
This is probably the NFSv3-problem, see 
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=17609 for details and also a
link to unofficial fix.
