Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done


Comment 2 Armel Kermorvant 2005-06-28 09:17:16 UTC
Good morning,

I have an issue about the DHCP choice, I explain :

I boot on with PXE, I choose thelanguage (French), the Keyboard (PC Latin),the
method of installation (NFS Server) and I choose the IP with DHCP and I have the
error :
" That Directory could not be mounted from the server"

I come back to the IP and I choose Static, the system stop, I reboot and I
choose Static IP, I have no problem.
I install FC3 with the same method DHCP, and the install wotrks perfectly

Thanks for your feedback

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-06-28 18:05:01 UTC
The 'That Directory...' message would appear /after/ dhcp gives you an IP
address so that part sounds like its working.  There's also a log of the dhcp
transaction on one of tty's.

This sounds more like an anaconda thing, so I'll reassign there.

Comment 4 Armel Kermorvant 2005-07-28 20:00:15 UTC
Sorry for the delay.

Yes, the message appears after the dhcp station gives the IP.

If I choose FC3 on the same server, I have no issue.

Thanks for your support

Best Regards

Good Afternoon, 

I check on FC5 Test 1 I  have the same issue.
In English the DHCP works fine, but when I choose French Language the same 
message appear " That Directory could not be mounted from the server"
If I come back on the preevious screen, and I choose the Fix IP the system 
doesn't continue.
It's necessary I reboot and I use the fix IP to proceed

Thanks for your feedback


Comment 6 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 10:28:31 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
