Depicts the "//" double slash problem in URL

Description of problem:
When trying to boot a virtual machine using a cobbler generated.iso file, I encounter the following message: " Unable to retrive " notice the "//" forward slashes. When I hit on ok, i get the chance to change the full path. See the attached picture that depicts this scenario.

So even after removing the "/" in front of the ks/dist/.... on the second line the problem re-occurs. So i can never get by this step as the URL is not valid because of the "//" double slashes bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
spacewalk 1.7
cobbler.noarch 2.2.3-2.el5

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a Kickstart Profile
2.In /etc/rhn/rhn.conf change the value of the parameter cobbler.host to the ip address of the spacewalk server.
In /etc/cobbler/settings change the value of the parameters server and redhat_management_server to the ip-address of the spacewalk server.
3. run:
   cobbler get-loaders
   cobbler buildiso
4. boot the vm using the buildiso.iso file
Actual results:

you get the: http://yourip//... (double slash problem)

Expected results:

You should get the: http://yourip/ks/dist/rhel5_64bit_dist/images/stage2.img

If you provision directly from Spacewalk, do you see the same problem? In other words, is this related to buildiso or to the kickstart generated by Spacewalk? What does the kickstart file look like in either situation?

Waiting for needinfo too long, closing.
