Description Rick Greene 2004-04-14 11:51:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

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:
cd /var/www/html/as21custom
mkisofs \
        -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):

How reproducible:

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.
