Description Jesse Keating 2008-01-05 12:54:12 UTC
Just a simple rawhide install attempt, booting from boot.iso, select NFS method,
can't mount (NFS server is a netapp).

Are you doing this inside of qemu or kvm with user networking?  If so, then due
to how NFS works and the way that the user networking works it can't really work.

Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2008-01-08 17:33:09 UTC
I don't think so.  I'll try again with real hardware just to be sure.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 04:17:25 UTC
