Description Shing-Shong Shei 2010-06-07 18:14:59 UTC
Description of problem:
When tried to use the DVD ISO image for installation, it failed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

12 and 13
How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. either setup a kickstart installation using an ISO image via NFS or interactively using ISO image stored on hard drive
Actual results:
Could not find the image.

Expected results:

Additional info:
If I do both 1) putting the DVD ISO image AND 2) make a copy of the directories/files (from /mnt aftter "mount -o loop xxx.iso /mnt"), the both kickstart (via NFS) and interactive (boot from a CD/DVD while trying to utilized the ISO image put in a second hard drive's partition) start to work.  But we shouldn't have to do both.  We have been using a single DVD ISO image for kickstart for years (on RHEL 3/4/5).  Apparently this is a bug on Fedora 12 and 13.  I did not look into it closely but I suspect that grub passes the parameter stage2=hd:LABEL="Fedora" might be the culprit.  Thanks.

You don't have to copy the entire contents of the ISO image.  However, you do have to make an images/ directory in the same directory as your ISO images and put install.img into that directory.

Well, unless this is a new feature.  Like I said, we have been doing this for the past 10 years and all we need is to put a single ISO DVD image (or all the CD ISO images.) into the directory.  Never need anything (like the install.img as you mentioned here) else.  The installation procedure will out the ISO image to get all it needs automatically.  Thanks.

I meant "mount: the ISO image..."
