Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 107397
Add/Remove Packages failed to recognize CD
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
Description of problem:
After performing an Upgrade install from RedHat 9.0, I chose the Add/Remove
Package Manager from the KMenu. I added some packages and removed others, then
clicked to continue. It prompted me to enter Fedora Core CD 1, which I did then
clicked OK. It prompted me again. I could never get it to get past this point
so had to click Cancel to abort. I used Synaptic instead. This was the same CD
set I used to install with.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run the package manager (not Synaptic) and select new packages to add.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run the package manager
2. choose one of the areas (like KDE for example)
3. select a package to install that it not already checked
4. click Next
It prompts for the Fedora Core CD but will not continue after inserting it and
After inserting the CD and clicking OK, it should've installed the packages that
I had the same problem. I installed test2 fresh, no upgrade with the CDs (which
all passed the media test). Run redhat-config-packages and select to install a
new package (have tried multiple different ones, lots of different scenerios)
and it prompts for CD1 in drive. I install CD and press continue, and its then
asked for CD1, rinse and repeat. I tried a second disc I had burned, same.
Without removing CD1 I mount drive and rpm install packages successfully.
Asus A7V - Athlon 900MHz - 128MB PC-133
Creative CD5222E CD-ROM
Ack, dont move to test2 yet, going to upgrade to test3 and test.
I also have this problem on a fresh test3 install. (severn 0.95)
It worked fine in 0.94.
Same problem here. Just trying to get copied on any change in status.

Change /dev/cdrom in fstab file on /dev/hdc or what you see in
That should solve the problem..
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
