User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20080208 Fedora/188.8.131.52-1.fc8 Firefox/184.108.40.206
Description of problem:
When you try to install Fedora from the rescue CD, it asks for the method you want to use.
If you choose "URL" then enter a wrong URL, say "ftp://ftp.free.fr/fedora/os",
it displays the URL entering screen again but it added a slash "/" after the server's name: "ftp://ftp.free.fr//fedora/os"
if you try it again without modifying you get "ftp://ftp.free.fr///fedora/os"
So One slash is added with each erroneous URL entered.
If you correct the URL but let the multiple slashes added, it's working as if there was only one slash, so it's not blocking.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora9-Alpha i386 rescue CD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from Fedora 9 Alpha rescue CD i386
2. choose to install
3. choose the "URL" method
4. enter a wrong URL and validate
5. the URL entering screen is displayed again with a slash added after the server's name
It adds a slash with each erroneous URL entered.
It should display the entry as the user typed it, not adding or removing anything.
Those additional slashes seem to be stripped off the URL when validating the entry because even if you add a dozen to a correct URL Anaconda is starting and installation begins.
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
This bug is still here in the Beta 9, is it "normal" ?
When will the next build of anaconda come ?
This was fixed in rawhide released after the beta, which is why you don't see it
there. There have been ten builds of anaconda after the one that was in the
beta, so they come pretty quickly.
