Comment 2 Brian Lane 2010-04-22 20:38:25 UTC
I think this is due to passing asknetwork and proxy=http://proxy.home:3128 to the kernel. At the text-mode network dialog it has stripped off the http:// from the URL.

Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2010-04-26 09:03:21 UTC
Brian, isn't this one a dupe of bug #576691?

Comment 6 Brian Lane 2010-04-26 16:17:25 UTC
I don't think so, in that bug it says they left off http, in my case I was passing it to the kernel and am sure it had http://, it loaded stage2 ok, but I suspect that something stripped off the http before it gets to the repo/package chooser dialog. clumens made some fixes to the proxy support in loader recently so that may be what is causing this problem.

Comment 7 Brian Lane 2010-04-29 00:29:21 UTC
Retested this with latest nightly DVD and it no longer throws an exception. Instead in stage2 it forgets the proxy setting entered on the command line, although it does show it correctly in the asknetwork text dialog.

It also won't complete the network install, even after entering the proxy information.

I'm going to close this and try to track down the current behavior I am seeing.
