ftp installs not working
Last modified: 2009-03-17 14:28:25 EDT
Description of problem:
I can not install with method=ftp:// nor repo=ftp://
http works just fine
jlaska confirme he sees the same
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. PXE boot anaconda rawhide (http://fpaste.org/paste/5228 has PXE menu entry)
anaconda asks for a URL, with the ftp path to install.img pre-filled. Nothing hits the xferlog of my FTP server. Selectig OK brings me immediately back to the same screen. Still no entries in xferlog. So it seems to not even try.
working ftp install
http as source works just fine.
this was discussed on #fedora-qa today

> What's on tty3?
get_connection (PID): NetworkManager connected
URL_STAGE_MAIN: url is
transferring ftp://MYSERVER/MYPATH/os/images/updates.img to a fd
transferring ftp://MYSERVER/MYPATH/os/images/product.img to a fd
transferring ftp://MYSERVER/MYPATH/os/images/install.img to a fd
the last 3 will repeat each time I hit OK on the anaconda pre-filled URL in the URL Setup screen, so sames as James. If at the URL Setup screen one just changes the ftp URL to the http URL anaconda continues fine.
Retested with rawhide today on i386 and ppc ... seems to work fine.
Patrick, can you retest to confirm?
anaconda 18.104.22.168 on i386 works fine for me.
Thanks Chris for the fix and thanks James for the testing.
