Re: fedora-triage-list Digest, Vol 7, Issue 1



Just to reply to my own post, since I fixed the problem. The problem
was that NFS was exporting the image read only and root_squash, so I
had to change that.  However, the stage2.img is still not mountable,
and that is probably due to some new format that is being used.
