Description Tim Wegener 2007-11-20 14:41:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Installation from DVD fails if GNOME is selected when it gets to the libxklavier
package. This is despite the mediacheck passing.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Fedora 8 DVD and go through install process.
2. Perform mediacheck and note that it passes.
3. Use default package setup.
4. During package installation wait for failure message.
Actual results:
The installer complains about a corrupt libxklavier-3.3-1.fc8 package. 
The only option at this point is to reboot.

Expected results:
Smooth installation with no errors.
Or at least being sent back to the package selection menu, rather than having to
reboot and start installation process from scratch.

Additional info:
Unchecking GNOME, and installing KDE only, allows installation to complete

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Did not have this problem with Fedora 10. Closing.
