Description of problem:
When redhat-config-packages prompts to insert CD-ROM. After inserting
correct CD (it's mounted automatically) and clicking [OK] -button it
seems to umount that CD (why?) and there appears error message :
Error installing packages
There was an error installing packages.
Shell error message :
The file /mnt/cdrom1/Fedora/RPMS/fontconfig-devel-2.2.1-6.1.i386.rpm
cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a bad package, or bad
media. Press <return> to try again.
If that redhat-config-packages application is started again, it finds
files from that CD without problems.
After (possible) CD change that same error message appears again and
all packages are being marked as installed even if it didn't install
anything after CD change (Another bug?).
If CD is inserted and umounted before running that application it
works without problems. All CDs are tested.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do not insert any CDs in any drive
2. Start redhat-config-packages
3. Try to install some packages
4. Insert correct CD and click [OK] -button
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.
