Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
after the initial installation i cannot go back to install more
packages. when it tries to install it will throw an error and exit the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to install packages
Actual results:program exits with no installation happening
Expected results:install packages
What's the error you receive?
I have the same problem. After running this through the terminal the
error is that it cant find the Redhat folder on the cdrom. this
appears to be pure laziness from the coders, as the folder is actually
there appears to be a value called PATH where the package installer
looks by default. If we can find some way to edit this from
/mnt/cdrom/Redhat/whatever to /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/whatever this problem
will be fixed I feel. I am currently looking for some kind of config
file where this value is defined.
I get identical results from RHL 9 - which is what led me here. It's
therefore not Fedora specific. so changing /mnt/cdrom/RedHat to
/mnt/cdrom/Fedora probably won't fix this.
The error message is:
Installation Tree Not Found
The path /mnt/cdrom does not look like a valid installation source
Even though RHL 9 Disk 1 is in the drive and the drive is mounted.
If I'm wrong about this, and you (or anyone else) has fixed this on
Fedora OR RedHat, please let me know.
To answer my own question. Apparently comps didn't install correctly
though rpm -q comps showed corrrectly.
rpm -Uvh --force /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/base/comps.rpm
fixed the problem
