anaconda reports "Missing ISO 9660 image" at beginning of NFS install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem: After supplying NFS server name and path, anaconda then
pops up a window titled "Missing ISO 9660 image", stating "The installer has
tried to mount image #1, but cannot find it on the server. Please copy this
image to the remote server's share path and click Retry. Click Exit to abort
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot rescue CD for 7.91 (F8 Test 2).
2. Export directory on NFS server containing the DVD iso of F8T2.
3. Run anaconda and tell it about this server and this ISO image location.
4. Get "Missing ISO 9660 image" error above.
Actual results: DVD ISO image is successfully mounted on /mnt/source
(/mnt/source/images/stage2.img exists), but anaconda can't seem to find this
"image #1". /mnt/sources2 contains all of what /mnt/sources contains plus a few
more files and directories, including repodata.
Expected results: Should have proceeded with install.
Does a boot iso (non-rescue) show the same behavior? There is some new code in
anaconda about mounting a rescue cd, current CVS has that at /mnt/source2
not /mnt/sources2 (could you confirm that path please) and using that for the
stage2.img. When that error shows up, at tty2, could you check what is mounted.
This should be fixed in the next test release. I did some work in this area
just a few days ago. Please try it out and reopen this bug report if you
continue to see this problem.
