Description IBM Bug Proxy 2003-12-19 18:32:04 UTC
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:  
RHEL 3.0 Update1 (Beta) installation requires too frequent CD change
Hardware Environment:

  P615+ 7029-6E3
  On board SCSI (Gemstone chip)
    1port x 1 (10/100M)  
    1port x 1 (Gigabit)
    1port x 1 (5700 Gigabit Ethernet-SX), on slot 1
    2port x 1 (5706 2-port Base-TX Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X Adapt) on slot 4
    1-way 1.2 GHz Power4+ Processor

Software Environment:
RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 GM with Update 1 CD1 (Dec. 11 Beta)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with RHEL 3.0 Update 1 Beta CD1
2. Start the installation process from CD

Actual Results:
 Each rpm/package need swapping disc1 and disc2 almost every time.
 Full installation will need swapping disc1 and disc2 more than 100 times.

Expected Results:
  Fewer CD change during the installation of update 1.

Additional Information:
 With RHEL 3.0 update 1 beta, only CD1 is new. All other CDs are the
same as GM.
 Maybe this is what causes the frequent CD change problem.Glen/Greg -
this is installation issue, so please submit this to Red Hat.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-12-19 23:06:13 UTC
The dev space available check is failing and thinking there's not
enough space for the updates to be cached (all of the updated packages
which are going to get installed generally get transferred to the hard
drive to avoid this, but I try to make sure you have a reasonable
enough amount of space first).

Just committed a fix to CVS

This problem is fixed.
