Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47039
HTTP TUI install isn't prepending / to "Red Hat directory"
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:23 EDT
Description of Problem:
When doing HTTP TUI install of Fairfax beta1, got an error retrieving
stage1 because the HTTP request didn't have a leading / on the URI. Adding
"/" to the front of the TUI field fixes it. There is also a typo on one of
the HTTP TUI dialogs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Answer questions about language and keyboard type.
2. For [Installation Method] dialog, choose HTTP.
3. For [Configure TCP/IP] dialog, choose:
[ ] Use dynamic...
IP address: 172.18.34.16
Default gateway (IP): 172.18.1.15
Primary nameserver: 172.18.14.1
4. For [HTTP Setup] dialog, choose:
Web site name: 172.18.1.28
Red Hat directory: fairfax/beta1/i386
Received dialog [Error] with text:
Failed to retrieve fairfax/beta1/i386/RedHat/base/netstg1.img: Bad FTP
(a) Note the error says "FTP", should be "HTTP".
(b) Inspecting the Apache access_log finds:
Invalid URI in request GET fairfax/beta1/i386/RedHat/base/netstg1.img HTTP/1.1
(note no leading slash on the path)
can be had by changing "Red Hat directory" to "/fairfax/beta1/i386" but
many people will probably trip over this.
should be fixed in CVS, needs testing.
