Fedora 10 install via Windows XP filezilla ftp server; ftp Url error in kickstart
 
Software: filezilla 0.9.33b server
user: linuxuser password: sameasusername

Location of Fedora 10 files on Windows XP box:

D:\fedora
images, isolinux, Packages, repodata, etc

boot: linux ks=hd:sdb1://kickstarts/ks.fed10.cfg

Error Displayed:
Bad argument to Url kickstart method command -<96>url: unknown option

I am attempting to install Fedora 10 on my main server box via an FTP server setup on my Windows XP box. Unfortunately, I receive the same kickstart error above in regards to the ftp "Url" syntax. What am I overlooking? Each "Url" line, listed in kickstart, did not work. As an initial test, I used the filezilla client to access files on the localhost (WinXP). The initial test was successful; the server and client logs state "/" is the current directory.

Below is my kickstart config:

Hi

Did you paste the ftp line off a web page ? ... I think the second hyphen-looking thing is not the correct character

Code:

url -url ftp://linuxuser:linuxuser@192.168.1.5/fedora
.. should be:

Code:

url --url ftp://linuxuser:linuxuser@192.168.1.5/fedora
Sometimes text editors will replace the hyphens for style purposes but it's actually a different character to the standard hyphen ( ascii 02dh ) and so is not valid according to anaconda

cheers,

kbp

You may be right; I did copy and paste those lines via a text editor. I do see the slight difference in length. I will correct my syntax and test the ftp install today. Thanks for the reply.
