Description Mike McGrath 2010-05-25 14:38:26 UTC
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):

F13 gold.

How reproducible:

every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  append "method=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/" to a F13 i386 install.
Actual results:

anaconda fails to download the install.img file

Expected results:

anaconda should download the install.img file

Additional info:

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2010-05-25 15:28:22 UTC
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?

Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2010-05-25 20:59:04 UTC
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.
