Description Karel Volný 2013-11-05 08:15:01 EST
Description of problem:
If you choose to install e.g. from http, and you do some networking change, the repository availability is not re-checked afterwards.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2013-11-05 nightly

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start network installation
2. at the overview screen, go to networking settings
3. just turn the network off, go back to overview
4. try to configure the installation repository
5. turn the network on

Actual results:
there is "Error setting up base repository" and you cannot install
going to repository configuration and confirming the configuration does not help

Expected results:
a) the error about repository config (which you should get after step 3) is more specific to give a clue what is wrong (see bug 1025398)
b) after activating the network in step 5, you can continue the installation without any other magic from user side

I don't think that triggering a recheck on changes in the network is feasible, since there may be intermittent issues that we'd better to ignore, and there may be issues elsewhere in the network unrelated to the network configuration for which we'd also want to recheck.

A better solution would be to recheck uninitialized repositories any time the source spoke is entered and the user hits "Done", regardless of whether the settings were changed. Such a change is handled in bug 1030997
