Description blain timberlake 2003-10-22 01:00:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Initial install went flawlessly.  I forgot however to place a checkbox next to
"Development Tools"

After installation was complete, I inserted Disk 1, autoran and it brought up
the graphical Package Manager.  I selected Development Tools, it generated a
list of RPM's to install.  I clicked to continue and was presented with a box
containing the text:  "Red Hat Linux 9" disk 2 needed to install packages Insert
the disk and press OK.

I inserted disk 2, it mounts the drive, I press OK and it replaces the previous
prompt with another one exactly the same.

Disk 2 is properly mounted and I can brose it fine while this box is up.  Upon
suggestions from peers I started up the Package Manager from the menu, (instead
of CD1) after I had already mounted and verified CD2.

My three CD's were made from .ISO files from a registered mirror of redhat.com 
All three CD's passed the "Test Media" portion of the install without issue, and
as previously stated the initial install went flawlessly.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.2-0.69

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install without any "Development Tools"
2. Try to add them after the fact
3.
    

Actual Results:  I get stuck in a continuous loop being prompted to insert Disk 2

Expected Results:  I would like to see more details on what exactly it couldn't
find.  The graphical interface for these installations is great, but when it
fails like this and I can't tell it to get the packages it needs from
ftp.redhat.com, or point it to another location, the graphical interface has
lost *A LOT* of functionality at that point.

What messages were on the console you started redhat-config-packages from or in
~/.xsession-errors?
