Description Kashif Ali 2008-07-28 11:06:16 EDT
Description of problem:
When install via kickstart over NFS the kickstart process stops and requests
user to re-input/check NFS details. However if the user just accepts original
values given via kickstart the installation continues.

This happens even if you use kickstart generated by anaconda

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

This currently  happens to Red Hat 5.2

How reproducible:

Create Kickstart file which uses NFS for installation method

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create kickstart file which uses NFS for installation method
2.PXe Boot the Kickstart Process
3.The kickstart process will stop at the NFS prompt
Actual results:
Text box requesting user input to verify details or update NFS details

Expected results:
If correct details (in test case they are) the installation should continue as
per normal with no input from user.

Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to this bug report so we can see what's going on.  If you can also attach your complete kickstart file (with the passwords and other sensitive bits removed), that would be helpful.
