Description Frédéric Beuserie 2005-04-07 19:42:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
when netinstalling from a ftp site with username/password, 
the password is badly encoded into the final anaconda.cfg.

(it seems to be encoded with %XX for each ascii char)

simply remplacing with the correct password manually into ks resolve the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a netinstall with ftp://username:password@site/
2. copy anaconda.cfg into the netinstall server
3. do a new netinstall with bootparam "linux ks=.../anaconda.ks"


Actual Results:  it fails to connect to the ftp server when retrieving rpm files

Expected Results:  connection should succeed with correct password.

Additional info:

ks is retrieved with anonymous http
