Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123285
Add/Remove Programs Assumes First CD-ROM Drive
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
When the add/remove programs application asks for disk, it assumes
that the device is /dev/cdrom
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On a system with two or more CDROM drives insert the disk in the
second CDROM drive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Add/Remove Programs
2. Add a new package
3. Insert the second CD-ROM drive
Even though the first CD-ROM drive was empty, the program failed to
check to see if the disk is in the second CD-ROM drive.
I expect the program to search the first CD-ROM drive. Then, on
failure, search the second CD-ROM drive.
This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported. It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
