Description of problem:
I get traceback while installing RHEL-7 from nfsiso:

Traceback (most recent call last):

NFSISO has kinda been my doing lately, so I'll take this and look into it.

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2012-10-30 17:12:32 UTC
Tracking the bug on the Fedora side, proposing Nice to Have for F18 beta.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-10-31 19:19:50 UTC
Discussed at 2012-10-31 NTH review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-31/f18beta-blocker-review-6.2012-10-31-16.00.log.txt .

As explained by Jesse at the meeting, he was using this bug as a general tracker for several NFS ISO issues in newui. We were not happy with acking something so vague, so we agreed in the meeting that this bug should be considered to be for one specific problem: NFS ISO functionality doesn't work via inst.repo cmdline parameter. It's not just that reboot at the end of install doesn't work, at this point, the function is just broken and needs fixing.

As this is a Final requirement and a feature of anaconda that we would like to be testing, the bug is approved as NTH for Beta. This means only that we will take fixes for the critical issue of NFS ISO functionality via inst.repo= not working. The other bugs in this area should be filed separately and considered for blocker/NTH status separately (if desired).

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2012-11-01 04:04:07 UTC
Patch posted.  It's kinda ugly, but it gets nfsiso work for Beta.

What doesn't work is starting from nfsiso (used for stage2) and selecting a /different/ nfsiso source.  I feel that's acceptable for Beta.

Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2012-11-08 09:41:10 UTC
18.26 went stable. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken).

Comment 10 Martin Banas 2012-11-08 10:23:01 UTC
Hello Adam,
Could you please wait with closing until somebody verifies that the bug is actually fixed?

Or did you verify that it works?

Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2012-11-08 10:37:39 UTC
I'm just doing what Bodhi would have done anyway. we don't require verification before closure, and there's no way I'm slogging through 20+ NTH bugs to verify them.
