Description Akira TAGOH 2008-04-22 23:07:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Once mistakenly specifying non-existent directory with nfs mounting, even if
correct directory is given, the install process can't go forward.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.specify non-existent directory with nfs install and see "That directory could
not be mounted from the server" error.
2.specify a directory that exactly has Fedora image.
Actual results:
still fails

Expected results:
should go forward next step

Additional info:
From the log:

Running... /bin/mount -n -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /mnt/stage2
mount: /dev/sr0 already mounted or /mnt/stage2 busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sr0 is already mounted on /mnt/stage2
Running... /bin/mount -n -t nfs -o nolock nfserver:/mnt/path/to/Fedora/i386/os
mount.nfs: /mnt/source is busy or already mounted
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-04-23 07:27:04 EDT
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda, I think.  Judging from your
log file blurb I assume you are booting off the boot.iso.  This is likely just a
side effect of never unmounting the CD when given a bad NFS directory and not
doing the proper cleanup when we go around for another try.
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2008-04-23 07:53:38 EDT
Oops, sorry. yes, you're right. I have tried with boot.iso.
Thank you for fixing!
