Description Kamil Páral 2012-11-15 04:03:44 EST
Description of problem:
I followed this test case:

When pxebooted, Anaconda correctly loads stage2 from the DVD on the specified disk partition, but doesn't use the internal package repo, instead it defaults to Closest Mirror, and the internal repo can't even be selected in the GUI.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F18 Beta TC8
anaconda 18.28

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use the linked test case to boot with inst.repo=hd:device:/dir or inst.repo=hd:device:/dir/dvd.iso
2. see Installation Source dialog
Actual results:
Closest Mirror is selected

Expected results:
internal DVD repo is selected

Same as in bug 876223, I think this could be a Final blocker:
" The installer must be able to use all supported local and remote package source options "
Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2012-11-19 13:01:55 EST
proposing as NTH for Beta, as jlk's interested in getting the fix in. Anyone have a vote?
Comment 8 Tim Flink 2012-11-19 13:09:58 EST
+1 NTH for a tested fix - this would be a final blocker and can't be fixed with an update after beta is released.
Comment 9 Kevin Fenzi 2012-11-19 15:10:16 EST
+1 NTH here as well.
Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2012-11-19 15:36:35 EST
+3 -> acceptednth.

I was able to hand-select the dvd.iso on a local partition, but that triggered bug 879610.

When I booted with inst.repo=hd:vda1:/ or inst.repo=hd:vda1:/dvd.iso, the main screen says "Error setting up install source". I tried to switch to closest mirror and then back to the device, but the device itself can't be selected. When I hand-picked the dvd.iso file, it caused bug 879612.
Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2012-11-30 02:18:23 EST
Kamil, does it show an error triangle when it says 'Error setting up install source'?

Note https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=879142 - when testing this in a non-PXE config, I found that it shows that 'error' message, but the warning triangle does not appear, and if you just proceed with the install, it actually works fine.
Comment 16 Kamil Páral 2012-11-30 04:41:19 EST
Adam, you're right! It says "error setting up install source", but no warning icon is present, and you can begin the installation. Shortly afterwards I end up with bug 879610, but that's another story.

I think we should reopen this bug. It no longer uses Closest Mirror, that's fine, but it displays an error when it shouldn't, so still not fully fixed.
Comment 17 Tim Flink 2012-11-30 12:59:34 EST
+1 final blocker due to violation of the following F18 final release criterion [1]:

The installer must be able to use all supported local and remote package source options.

Comment 18 Adam Williamson 2012-11-30 23:03:48 EST
I already filed a bug for the error message, and even linked to it in my comment. Since it's clearly a different bug, it seems more sensible to track it separately. I recommend setting this back to CLOSED, if you have no objections. Plus, this issue is not PXE-specific.
Comment 19 Kamil Páral 2012-12-03 04:23:14 EST
Ah, my bad. Closing, the issue is tracked in bug 879142.
