Description of problem:
While installing packages, if the target rpm isn't found, the install
just prompts you to retry.  

A reboot/exit option should be available.

A skip option for non-essential packages should be available.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install using a cd with a corrupt or missing file.

Additional info:

This isn't the biggest deal, but it's extremely frustrating to fail at
the end of an install--especially for a package that could easily be
added later.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-06 21:40:41 UTC
The missing RPM could be crucial and thus leave you with a non-working
system.  Also, the installer depends on certain packages getting
installed so that things can be run in the post-install stage.  If
these aren't installed, then it could cause later tracebacks.
