Description Nigel Metheringham 1999-10-15 14:06:49 UTC
Whilst making a custom RH based CD a typo was made in the comps file (package spelt with wrong upper/lower casing) genhdlist/mkisofs etc was then run. On install using an upgrade option, and checking the "customise packages for upgrade" (or similar) option, the installer hung whilst checking for packages to upgrade. [This will only hit people who play silly games with the installer, but might be worth working round]

*** Bug 6033 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** anaconda does not handle misspelled package names very well. If a package name is misspelled in RedHat/base/comps, anaconda dies. For example, if wu-ftp is specified instead of wu-ftpd, anaconda dies. The "old" installer issued an error message and continued.
