Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59785
RFE: Does not recognise NFS permisson problem
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:51:19 EDT
Description of Problem:
Attempting to do an install via NFS, I had made a mistake with the directory
permissions on the server such that the directory could be mounted fine, but
that the directory was not searchable. Anaconda gave a message about not being
able to find the install tree. Ideally it should have given an error about
not being able to read the directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.2.90 beta 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create mount point with world executable but not readable
2. Attempt to use for anaconda
Error message about not being able to find Red Hat install tree.
Permission denied by server error message.
NFS server running RH 7.1
We're in a string freeze, so can't really add new dialogs at this point.
This looks like it should be fixed in our current code
