Default Installation via HTTP or FTP doesn't work - possible bug?

Hi mailinglist..

I'm trying to install Fedora 8 from a http- or ftp-source, using the
minimal CD boot media.


Problem:
It seems that the installer does randomly add one or more additional "/"
between the server and the directoy - thus creating a faulty http-request:


Data used (example)
Installation server - www.jur-linux.org
Directory - /download/fedora/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os/images

Error message
could not find
http://www.jur-linux.org///download/fedora/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os/images/stage2.img


Did I do something wrong, or is this a bug?

Thank's for your help in advance.

Stefan

Did you try installing without inserting the "/" before "download"?

Yes, I did. But the installer seems adds the "/" automatically...
I tried several attempts to prevent a "/" at the beginning - but without
success - on the contrary - It seems, that the "/" accumulate with every
attempt. I also had error-messages with more than three "/".

I don't think the extra /'s are the problem. At least I have seen
this same thing before, and it have never caused problem. You can
access the site by putting the exact same URL as in the error
message and it usually works. Is it possible that the site was busy
when you are trying to access it? Depending on how the installer
identifies itself when connecting, there may be a limit of how many
can connect at one time. I don't have my access logs from when I did
my install, but I know an HTML install works.
