Description of problem:
I downloaded the ISO images for yarrow-x86_64 and burned the CDs.
Installation as "Workstation" went fine, the CD media check at the
start also reported no errors.
Then I wanted to install the packages from the section "kernel
development". The GUI asked me to insert "yarrow" CD1 and I did so,
but I got that question again and again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from x86_64 CDs (Fedora Core 1 for x86_64)
2. Use "Workstation" as "flavor"
3. After system is up try to install section "kernel development"
Actual Results: Installer asks for CD1 but doesn't recognize the CD
at all. Media is correct due to check before install. No way out of
this, the message box that tells me to insert the correct media is
showing up again and again and if you click on cancel nothing is going
to be installed.
Expected Results: Installation without errors.
Looking in the .discinfo files of the CD I find the first 2 lines like
Looking into /usr/share/comps/x86_64/.discinfo the first 2 lines are:
If I replace the first 2 lines in /usr/share/comps/x86_64/.discinfo
with the content of the CD's .diskinfo file then I don't get the
question about the CD any more if the requested CD is inserted.
BUT then the next problem appears: I get an "error during
installation". Looking at the output of redhat-config-packages it
complains that the requested package is not on the CD. For example:
for libacl-devel-2.2.7-2.x86_64.rpm the installer requests CD#1 but
in fact the RPM file is located on CD#3. So it looks like the lookup
table to find out which RPM is where is totally messed up.
Problem is solved in Fedora Core 2 test 3.
