Default BFO config problem causes annoying "retry" messages (with easy fix)

Is this worth changing during freeze? I'd think so... +1 from me.

Subject: BFO config problem causes annoying "retry" messages (with easy fix)

Hi guys,

As detailed in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=656076 the pxelinux config used by boot.fedoraproject.org causes annoying repeated "retry" messages during BFO installs.

The problem is that bfo/pxelinux.cfg/fedora_install.conf specifies 'method=http://download.fedoraproject.org/...' as a boot argument. This overrides the yum repo files that are used in the installer in Fedora 13 and later - so we don't get to use the normal mirrorlists.

The fix is really easy. Just change bfo/pxelinux.cfg/fedora_install.conf
as follows:

For Fedora 13 and 14, change:
append method=http://[...]/os/
to:
append stage2=http://[...]/os/images/install.img

When you add Fedora 15 Alpha (or later), leave off the "append method"
line altogether. (Fedora 15 has stage2 already inside the initrd.)

This won't work for Fedora 12, but oh well.

Hope this helps. Please contact me if you need any more info.

-w

Yeah, I would agree. +1 here too.

I looked around for the config for this in puppet the other day and
didn't see it. Is it not puppetized?
