Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 595753
Anaconda no longer works with redirected methods
Last modified: 2010-05-25 16:59:04 EDT
Description of problem:
This worked in F12 but not in F13 (perhaps a urlgrabber difference?) If you use our download.fedoraproject.org as your method, for example:
anaconda will fail to follow that redirect
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. append "method=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/" to a F13 i386 install.
anaconda fails to download the install.img file
anaconda should download the install.img file
I've got an install going right now using your above method= string that's downloading install.img. It's true that we used to have a problem with redirects (libcurl does not follow them by default), but that should have been fixed for a while now. Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log (tty3) to this bug report so we have some more information to go on?
I'm going to close this bug. I think I had a string of unlucky attempts this morning (probably related to mirror overload in the release) because I can't reliably reproduce it now.
