Description Dax Kelson 2007-01-28 20:50:01 UTC
Description of problem:

I have done many sucessful NFS installs of RHEL5beta2. Today I tried a FTP
install and about 2/3rds the way through installing packages it claimed it had a
problem reading the sabayon RPM. I checked the FTP server and the package was
fine. Note that I'm "skipping" inputing a installation number.

I rebooted and tried the install again and got the same error.

The FTP server PATH is: /pub/netinstall/RHEL5

I did a packet capture and observed the following when I hit the "Retry" button
on the sabayon popup message:

  0.778021 -> FTP Request: USER anonymous
  0.778040 -> TCP 21 > 34766 [ACK] Seq=21 Ack=17

  0.779906 -> FTP Response: 331 Please specify the

  0.780932 -> FTP Response: 230 Login successful.

successfully changed.
  0.782219 -> FTP Request: CWD RHEL6
  0.782392 -> FTP Response: 550 Failed to change

Notice that Anaconda tried changing into the RHEL6 directory instead of RHEL5!

On the server I created symlink from RHEL6 to RHEL5, clicked retry and the
install continued for 5 more minutes and then bombed out. I'm attaching the
traceback for the bombout.

Seems this is duplicated by bug 229181. Suspected cause:

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2007-07-24 21:40:40 UTC
This is now working correctly in RHEL 5.1 nightly builds.  Closing as nextrelease.
