Description Stephane Jourdan 2003-07-22 09:51:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030619

Description of problem:
Whatever I try to install via the redhat-config-packages interface, it keeps
asking me for the disc #x (x = corresponding required disk).
Wether I insert disc #1, #2 or #3, it keeps asking for it, without any error

When I click 'cancel', the app shutdown without any trace or whatever.

It's the same problem for *any* selected package here.

Problem seen on a clean install, fr_FR.UTF-8 language.
The same with a similar clean install, with default en_US.UTF-8 install.

It doesn't seem to check the availibility of the CD-Rom, or has a wrong database
in it ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch redhat-config-packages
2.select a package to install
3.look how it keep asking the CD #x

Verified with Cambridge- Cancel will exit entire program instead of
taking you back to the main interface.
Comment 3 Alexander M. Turek 2003-07-24 16:33:42 EDT
I also encounter this bug with Red Hat Severn.
After clicking cancel, the program shuts down as described above. Afterwards, I 
cannot access the CD-ROM's file system untill I mount it again.

I can repeat that as often as I want: the CD gets somehow unmounted everytime I 
try to install packages using this GUI.
Comment 4 Scott Newton 2003-07-27 04:00:46 EDT
This also seems to occur when attempting to install packages directly from the
cd using nautilus.  Any package that has a dependency causes the installer to
crash and immediately unmount the cd. Packages without dependencies install
without problems.

Comment 6 Elton Woo 2003-07-31 15:39:11 EDT
I can concur that any installation from autorun _which requires a dependency_
will cause a constant repetition of "insert Disk #", with a *very* breif flicker
of the CD drive light, and then the dialog just disappears, without *any* error

Comment 9 George Karabin 2003-09-27 16:38:55 EDT
I don't know if this is the same issue, or separate, but I've burned a Severn
beta 2 DVD made with Chris Kloiber's script
(ftp://people.redhat.com/ckloiber/mkdvdiso.sh). I can mount the disc, but
redhat-config-packages doesn't try to use it (on my beta 2 machine). 

Either this is the same issue, or it's a different one because
redhat-config-packages might not support DVD's yet (although I hear RHEL
supports them, so maybe it should?)

FYI, the .discinfo file looks like:

Fedora Core 0.94
Comment 10 Halldor Hafliðason 2003-10-15 11:58:04 EDT
I just installed Severn test 3 (0.95), still the same proplem, any package ( 
at all, tried them all ) makes it behave like that, this maybe doesn't matter 
to much since apt-rpm solved the problem for me, it still is annoying.
I use:

Comment 11 Elton Woo 2003-10-15 13:14:22 EDT
The bug is still present in the latest beta (Fedora Core Test / RH 9.0.95). 
The only way to install packages is either via the console, or by opening 
a window with the CD contents and clicking on the icons. IMHO, this is not 
just a minor annoyance, but a serious lack of performance in a *necessary* 
system tool.
