Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243528
Network install (using http or ftp) does not work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
The http and ftp installation methods of the official Fedora 7 for x86 DVD are
If you choose the installation by http, Anaconda adds a spurious slash between
the mirror address and the path to fedora directory
( http://mirror.xyz.com//path/to/os/directory instead of
http://mirror.xyz.com/path/to/os/directory) and the download of stage2.img fails.
The ftp installation method instead works fine until the package download phase
where it fails with a similar issue (it tries to download from
ftp://mirror.xyz.com/%2F/path/to/os/Fedora/ instead of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start the installation from the official Fedora 7 i386 dvd and try to install by
http or ftp using any mirror.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch the installation of Fedora from the Dvd
2. Select any keoboard/language and then try to start second phase of the
installation from http or ftp
3. put the mirror address and the path to Fedora 7 files and directory then
Anaconda does not find the files needed for the installation/upgrade from internet.
Anaconda install Fedora 7 x86 by downloading the proper files from internet.
I can confirm the same problem, but on FTP anaconda add // betwen the server and
fedora location instead of only /.
When I try http something seamed to hapend and I left the computer on over the
night. When I got up the next morning nothing had hapend so I gave up and
downoaded the whole DVD iso and used hardisk install.
I got a 64 bit version.
This has been fixed in rawhide.
