Description alex kramarov 2003-08-14 15:21:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Description of problem: the latest beta has 1 AS cd, 1 WS cd, and 2 shared cds, put in an ISO directory like this : taroon-i386-as-disc1.iso taroon-i386-disc2.iso taroon-i386-disc3.iso taroon-i386-ws-disc1.iso if you try to install it using nfs or harddrive installation from such a directory, that contains both AS and WS, you get one of the products installed, and for me it was not the one i intended (i wanted AS, and got WS - i didn't think that i had both As and WS cds in the directory). anaconda should detect such a condition, and at least tell you that it is trying to install "such and such" product. better yet, let the user choose. this is important, since later there will also be ES, so 3 products with 2 shared cds, one could create 3 directories with simlinks to the nesessary iso for AS, ES and WS, but some filesystems do not support that ... Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): stock of RHAS 3 beta 1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.copy all the isos from ftp.redhat.com of the latest beta 2.install using the nfs method 3. Actual Results: you get WS Expected Results: expected AS Additional info: of course, this may not be considered a bug, but a feature. for me it's problematic if anaconda can't handle such scenario.

If not already mentioned in the documentation and release notes, my understanding is that you cannot mix ISOs as you are trying to do.

This is by design and is not going to change at the present time. Please use separate directories and either symlinks or hardlinks for the shared discs.
