Description natraj 2003-04-03 15:30:38 UTC
Description of problem:Resuming the installation with out a particular package.

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

How reproducible:
Install RedHat Linux

Additional info: 
The installer should allow a user to resume the installation if a 
particular .rpm file is not found on the path.

1) For instance if the user is installing RedHat linux through network and if 
the package is not found in the path either the installer should prompt for a 
new path or should allow the user to resume the installing skipying that rpm.
This method allows the user to install RedHat Linux and bring up the system. If 
that skipped package is necessary user can install it when the system is up and 
running.

2) If that rpm is very much mandatory for linux to be up and running then the 
installer should prompt the user to choose the installation Method 
(NFS,FTP,HTTP, or any other Media). This is the maximum that an installer could 
do for a missing package.

Reason: Just because of a package(rpm) the installation should be stopped.
