Description Jasper Siepkes 2007-06-02 11:15:50 UTC
Description of problem:
Network installation from FTP or HTTP (Haven't tried NFS) dies after the
stage2.img is downloaded successfully with:

19:45:46 ERROR : LOOP_SET_FD failed: Device or resource busy
19:45:46 ERROR : Error mounting /dev/loop0 in /mnt/runtime (Device or resource busy)

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

How reproducible:
Boot from any Fedora 7 ISO (Be it the full DVD or the Rescue CD) and try to 
perform a network installation from FTP or HTTP.

Expected result:
After the stage2.img is downloaded it is successfully mounted to the loopback
device and stage 2 of the installer is started.

Some comments that may or may not be helpful

- I've only seen this on the x86_64 install DVD and rescue CD.  the i386 rescue
cd can do a network install (haven't tested the i386 DVD)
- For x86_64, You can use the boot.img image in the 'images' folder and the
network install will start and complete.  But the resulting install doesn't want
to boot, and I think it is due to a root on raid-1 problem but I need to do some
more testing to be sure.

I've just performed HTTP installations on i386 and x86_64 for Fedora 8 Test 1
and this bug appears to have been fixed.  I think I fixed it, in fact.  I
remember working on this particular problem a couple of months ago.

Thanks for the reports.
