anaconda no longer handles a port number in a kickstart URL
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the installer with ks=http://host:port/ks.cfg
Installer fails to find kickstart file.
Installer finds kickstart file.
