From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
kickstart post section does not remount cdrom when bash 
command "mount -t iso9660 /tmp/cdrom /mnt/source" is at the start
This is required to allow the use of sed to modify files as they are 
copied from the cdrom to the computer. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mounting the cdrom multiple times in the post section

Actual Results:  sed commands in post section produce empty config 

Expected Results:  sed commands customise the network and server 
aplication config files

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-11-20 04:34:11 UTC
If you go to tty2 and try to mount it by hand, does it work?  Are you
doing %post --nochroot or just %post?

Comment 2 Richard Chart 2004-04-02 23:04:29 UTC
We can reproduce this problem, and in answer to the comment from 
Jeremy Katz: no, mounting it by hand on tty2 fails, with:
mount -t iso9660 /tmp/cdrom /mnt/source
mounting cdrom on /mnt/source failed no such file or directory 

This is when running with:
%post --nochroot

...but the cdrom could eventually be found at /dev/hdc and mounted 
from there OK

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-11 17:19:36 UTC
Does /tmp/cdrom still exist?  (It's not at all guaranteed to)

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-05 15:43:33 UTC
Closing due to inactivity.  If you continue to have this problem on a
newer release of Fedora Core, please reopen and add any additional
information to this report.
