Description of problem:
When doing a network install i mount cdrom disk 1 in the cd-server and it
never tryes to change disk. tetex-fonts is on disk 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Network NFS boot
2. mount cd disk 1 on remote system and export to net.
3. begin install
4. install will stop and tell you it was unable to find
tetex-fonts-1.0.7-15.i386.rpm It will then give you the option
of try again.
5. It is then stuck in a loop!
Actual Results: stuck in a loop
Expected Results: ask for location of 2nd cd or umount the fs and ask the
user to change
cd's on the cd-rom server.
I have a large number of systems to install and in 2 weeks have not made
any progress do to bugs in the installer.
You can't do NFS installs like that. It used to be possible before the
distribution added the second CDROM. What you need to do is copy the contents
of both cd's to a directory on the NFS server, and then export that directory.
Then, the other computers should be able to mount that directory.
Please reopen this bug if this doesn't help.
