Description of problem:
May be related to bug 87867, however the update attachments on that ticket do
not fix the problem for me.
Toshiba 2535CDS laptop.
tty4 says something like IO/Error Can't cd to 'xxxx/xxxx.../hdlist2'
It had already successfully retrieved the netstg2.img file.
Is it attempting to cd to a file name instead of a directory name?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from floppy.
2.linux dd and provide pcmcia drivers.
3.check the non-anonymous ftp box when prompted
4.successful get of netinstl file
5.IO/Error on hdlist2 get
Actual Results: Install hangs on 'There was a problem...'
Can't go forward and worse, can't go back. Have to kill installation.
Expected Results: RH9 installation.
Work around is to use anonymous ftp.
What ftp server daemon are you using?
The ftp daemon is vsftpd on RH8, all errata applied.
