Description Tom Hughes 2006-12-19 07:42:10 EST
Description of problem:

Using a ks option to specify an http URL that includes a port number no longer
works in Fedora Core 6 - anaconda does not remove the port number and asks the
name server to resolve host:port as a name. When that fails it gives up on
trying to use kickstart.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the installer with ks=http://host:port/ks.cfg
Actual results:

Installer fails to find kickstart file.

Expected results:

Installer finds kickstart file.
