NFS install mounting directory with iso file doesn't work.
Last modified: 2008-08-11 10:39:54 EDT
Description of problem: When you use PXE boot and use method=nfs:server:/path it only appears to look for an images directory and not for a .iso file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 Alpha
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. PXE boot
2. add method=nfs:server:/path to command line
5. Configure TCP/IP, OK
6. Error, That directory could not be mounted from the server.
7. Lists server name and /patch/images/stage2.img
Error, That directory could not be mounted from the server.
Lists server name and /patch/images/stage2.img
Should just mount /path/Fedora-10-Alpha-i386-DVD.iso and boot.
And if it can't find it is shouldn't list /path/images/stage2.img.
It should only list /path.
I ran tcpdump and it doesn't look like it even tries to find the .iso file.
I only see it look for the images directory.
You need to use method=nfsiso:server:/path now. This is probably worth documenting in the release notes.

This has been done.
