Description Stefan Sturm 2003-12-28 11:00:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
See bug 85861, which says it all. It is for sure reproducable, and a
bugfix file has been attached.

1.Even though the first drive is the good one, the installer will
probe all drives, causing install to fail to mount the CDROM, since it
tries the good one first, mounts but continues trying the next drive.

2. Info about the drives is tried on the wrong device, more then 1
device present, and the first is unmounted, but still default.

Maybe this explanation is difficult to understand, but a diff of the
attached file might help :-)

Similar to bug 84748, which might be solved with this one too.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start program without discs inserted
2.try to install 1 packages.
3.after inserting the disc on request, the error happens
4.program stops -> Another bug ?

Make sure you have more then 1 device (cdrom, cdrom1)

Expected Results:  1. We should install


2. If it fails, I like to see the correct reason (only visible when
started in a terminal)
3. If it fails to mount a drive or find a package file, it should
return to the main window, allowing more or other updates

Additional info:

This is the trace I added myself to debug. Added a lot of extra

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 16:15:31 EDT
This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported.  It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
