Description Juergen Weiss 2001-02-28 10:53:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14smp i686)

on fisher-i386-disc2.iso the /RedHat/instimage NFS installer tree is
missing, also it is indicated in the README file. So kickstart and
NFS-Installations fails.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy Redhat dirs from disc 1 and disc 2 to target directory
2. try an nfs install with bootnet.img

Actual Results:  Installation fails

Expected Results:  Installation should complete without errors

md5checksum are ok

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-02-28 11:02:05 UTC
the README file is out of date.  The installation should complete properly if
you just copy disc1 and disc2 into the same directory.

Comment 2 Juergen Weiss 2001-02-28 12:04:11 UTC
I'm not quit sure that this is a proper solution. There are no *.py files neither in disc1 nor in disc2
I mount the iso-image with
                                              mount -o loop fisher-i386-discx.iso /mnt/RedHat-CDx      x=1,2
                                              cd /mnt/RedHat-CDx
                                              find . -name "*.py" -print
No files where found

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-02-28 14:43:31 UTC
you don't understand the new implementation.  The nfs installer uses the
loopback ext2 filesystem in RedHat/base/stage2.img.
