Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240657
http install failed because no _sha256 module
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Install process fails after loading stage2 when doing an http install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide mirror from May 18th.
100%, but I only tried a couple of times.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy initrd.img and vmlinuz from 2007-05-18 rawhide to /boot
2. Modify grub.conf to allow booting from above image
3. Boot from above image and choose http install
4. Set up network device and http location information
After doing this eventually anaconda will halt. The trace back scrolls off the
screen and shuts things down so that I can't look at the full log, but the
modules listed that I can still see are hashlib, urllib2 and urlgrabber.
Being able to continue with install process.
