Description of problem:

Doing PXE/kickstart install. ks file is on nfs server.  Anaconda logs indicate:

file location: nfs://saga:/export/data1/ks/rawhide-desktop.cfg
setting up kickstart

but then it is prompting me for language, keyboard, install location, etc.

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

The correct syntax here is ks=nfs:saga:/export/data1/ks/rawhide-desktop.cfg.

If it's failing to download the kickstart file, you should at least be getting
the dialog box prompting you to enter a new location.  Are you not getting that
dialog box?
Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2007-10-18 11:41:39 EDT
Sorry, my bad.  Somehow the rawhide-desktop.cfg was actually a directory and not
a file on my server and I didn't notice until I poked around further.

nfs found it, but since it didn't contain anything nothing happened.  http
returns an error so it prompted for a new file location (which is what spurred
me to check further).
