Description David Jaša 2014-02-18 09:33:38 UTC
Description of problem:
inst.stage2= parameter takes as its argument path of root of installation tree. repo= parameter takes as argument exactly the same path, therefore it would make sense to fill the undefined one with the value of defined one when just one of these two is defined and the other one is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL-7.0-20140218.n.0 / anaconda-19.31.59-1.el7.x86_64.rpm  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot to net installation of anaconda:
kernel: from ${base}/isolinux/vmlinuz
initrd: from ${base}/isolinux/initrd.img
params: inst.stage2=${base}/LiveOS/squashfs.img

Actual results:
repo= is empty and user has to type the same uri again

Expected results:
repo= is pre-filled with the inst.stage2 value

Additional info:
if this bug is accepted, please clone the bug for the opposite functionality: fill undefined inst.stage2= parameter with value of repo= parameter.

Comment 1 Brian Lane 2014-02-20 00:28:56 UTC
Just use inst.repo if that is the behavior you want. stage2 will be pulled from it, and the repo will be used for the install. inst.stage2 allows you to use squashfs from the install image and the repo from, for example, a kickstart.
