I am trying to install a centos 5.0 domU via virt-manager (or
alternatively as described in the centos howtos). Anaconda boots up
fine, asks for the language, then for the installation medium. Here my
I am trying to install via nfs, so I enter my IP details and nfs server
details, but after confirming the nfs details, anaconda barely tries to
contact the nfs server and instead spits out following error message
Error: That directory can not be mounted from the server.
I have exported a centos DVD via nfs. The DVD is good, the export also.
Also my entire setup seems ok, because if I export a Fedora 7 DVD
instead of the centos DVD, I can access the nfs share and install Fedora
7 without problems. ONLY WITH CENTOS I have this problem. It must be
something with the centos installation kernel/image/anaconda installer imho.
I have not found any reports describing this behaviour. Am I the first
who has had this problem? How could I go about debugging what anaconda
is doing / why it fails? I am completely out of ideas of what could be
the cause of this problem and how I could get rid of it. Any hints?
