Bodhi 5.1.0 Installation Bug - Network Install
 
I have my Bodhi linux installation CDROM booting from the network over PXE, and the installation runs fine except the last part barfs out when it tries to access /cdrom/installer. Obviously this path doesn't exist when the network install is running, so reporting this as a bug.

The net install bug happened with both the -64 and the -apppack variants (I didn't try any other variat, but I assume they will be the same).

I burnt a CD and the installation ran fine on the same computer so no issues there.

A possible workaround that I didn't test would be to symlink the /cdrom mount point to the netinst nfs mountpoint.

No where do I or any official bodhi document make the claim that installing Bodhi in this fashion is supported. If it is not working for you it clearly is not supported.

So it is not a bug it is a feature you wish was supported. It is a feature of low importance to me so I am not planning on spending any time into looking into it. Even if we did support it it would be for our next release anyway. Users that want to work on this problem are free to do so, just be aware our next release presents some special challenges ... such as the program used to make our ISOs no longers works (On ubuntu versions greater than 18.04). But I am not going to have time myself to look at this. Sorry.
