need help getting fedora 17 to install from ftp server
Install from dvd does not work. I tried for days various stuff off google. The installer always hang with "dracut warning /dev/disk/by-label/....does not exist..."
"dracut warning /dev/mapper/live-rw ... does not exist"
the fix "replace root=live:CDLABEL=.... with root=live:/dev/sr0" that work for some people does not work for me hence the ftp method.....
I set up my ftp server correctly. I can see it from another computer. No password or anything. The entire fedora dvd 64 bit files are sitting in the /var/ftp/pub/inst/ folder.
On the computer I am trying to install Fedora 17, I have dual boot, windows 7, RHEL 6.2 with grub legacy on the MBR.
files "vmlinuz-install" and "initrd.img-install" are in my /boot directory in the RHEL 6.2 system. My menu.1st entry is shown below:
root (hd3,0) <---------this is where RHEL 6.2 boots from
initrd /boot/initrd.img-install repo=ftp://192.168.1.6/inst
Could someone point me in the right direction?
