Extra '/' in folder path

Hello,

When trying to do a network install of FC6 to an older laptop with only a cdrom I ran into this situation. Having a FC6 DVD I made a boot cdrom from the boot .iso file on the cdrom. Using this boot cdrom I attempted to connect to a remote mirror for the install using HTTP but I keep getting an extra '/' in the folder path. For instance I'll enter mirror.ct.vt.edu /pub/fedora/6/i386/core and hit OK and will get unable to download ... and the path shown will be mirror.ct.vt.edu//pub/fedora/6/i386/core.
The extra '/' is always in the same place and if I leave it out the the path will show up without the extra '/' but still fails.
I haven't a clue. Please help.

The extra "/" doesn't matter, the real problem is wrong path. You should use pub/fedora/linux/core/6/i386/os/ for the mirror.ct.vt.edu server.

Why FC6

get FC7 http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/rel...-Live-i686.iso

burn in to CDROM
or check ftp folder path /i386/os

Why burn the isos when you can install from network? All you need is the kernel from the os dir of a mirror and the init image. Boot those and you are read to install.

You can use it in multiple installs and save bandwidth

Excuse me ... that path was just an example. Actually I was trying to do the install from a dvd that was mounted on my FC7 server. The actual path was: http://192.168.1.103/var/www/html/fedora what kept comming up in the failure notification was:
http://192.168.1.103//var/www/html/fedora

"fedora" is a link to the mounted dvd of FC6

Thanks In Advance

Can you use a web browser to connect to http://192.168.1.103/var/www/html/fedora ? What do you see at that address? If the DocumentRoot of your httpd is /var/www/html (the default in Fedora) and the DVD is mounted in /var/www/html/fedora, then the right URL should be http://192.168.1.103/fedora. Check also the http server logs for errors.

markkuk,

Thanks ... I figured it out ... it was staring at me in the logs the *.*.1.110 IP was the client NOT the server, The server is *.*.1.103
I did as you suggested http://192.168.1.103/fedora and it's working.
Thanks for your help and concern.
