Description of problem:
Custom install CD was created. Process used: downloaded AS2.1 Update
3 CDs. Mounted iso files with "-o loop". Created empty directory,
copied entire contents of each iso file to that directory. Disk 3
first, then Disk 2, then Disk 1. Removed SRPMS directory. Removed
all unwanted RPMs from the RedHat/RPMS directory. Used mkisofs to
create new bootable iso file:
-A "R&B Red Hat Linux/2.1 i386" \
-V "R&B Red Hat Linux/2.1 i386" \
-J -R -v -T -o /rpms/custom_as21.iso \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/boot.cat \
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
CD boots fine, and I am able to do "linux ks=floppy" to use a ks.cfg
kickstart file on a floppy. Install proceeds through all steps
including partitioning & formatting filesystems without error. About
50% of requested packages install, including the kernel and kernel-smp
packages. During the install of kernel-source, the error occurrs.
Message of import seems to be:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/mnt/source/.disc1-i386'
I will attach the full saved dump once the bug is fully submitted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot custom install CD (see Description for how it is created)
2. execute "linux ks=floppy"
3. error occurrs during package install
Actual Results: see Description
Expected Results: should have gotten a good install

Your CD is poorly formed. You need to have the .discn-arch files (and
also, I'm guessing you need to rerun genhdlist so that it doesn't
think that packages are on different cds).
This isn't really supported, though.
