Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247594
http installation of fedora 6 fails after booting with boot-only CD
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:network installing via http (mirror server). TCP config
runs fine, but when entering host server name (input is split up in two lines),
(PS: its a must -the user has to enter two lines), the program concatenates the
two independent strings by adding a slash to each line. example:
my entering: line 1 fedora.kiewel-online.de
line 2 core/6/i386/os
the program responds with (after about 5 minutes):
unable to retrieve ....from http://fedora.kiewel-online.de//core/6/i386/os/ima..
PLEASE NOTE THE TWO SLASHES BETWEEN DE AND CORE.
BEING a c-programmer, I tried to enter a backslash at the end of the first line
to cancel out one of the slashes, but in vain. When I enter one slash on one of
the lines, the response is:
"unable to retrieve... from ....online.de///core/6....
PLEASE NOTE THE THREE SLASHES IN THIS CASE.
TO ME ITS AN OBVIOUS BUG - COULD HAPPEN TO ME, ADDING A SLASH TWICE.
OF COURSE ITS ONLY MY BEST GUESS
i wish I could help
PS: I am not sure I entered the right component, but it must be something
with "http", I guess..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):boot.iso
How reproducible:every time (tried about 10 times)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.download boot.iso (fedora 6) and burn a CD (boot-only cd)
2.boot with the burned CD and tell about HTTP MEDIA, when prompted
3.enter your own tcp/ip configuration (works fine) and then enter the media-
then you get the problem:(see description)
Actual results:UNABLE TO RETRIEVE MEDIA FROM ... SERVERNAME//CORE/6/i386
PLEASE NOTE THE TWO SLASHES= ERROR DURING CONCATENATION OF THE TWO INPUT LINES
(PS. WHY ON EARTH DID YOU HAVE TO SPLIT UP INPUT IN TWO LINES? THAT CAUSED THE
Expected results:connection to server, which of course was impossible.
Additional info:I have said enough already.
Please don't open multiple bugs for the same problem.
