Can not set network repos before default mirrors are probed
Last modified: 2015-09-08 10:05:18 EDT
When doing a rawhide network install anaconda does not let one change repo urls before network is activated and default mirrors are probes
when most mirrors are in a broken state and the network connection is slow, this can take tens of minutes
There should be a way to setup repo urls before network is activated
There should be a way to setup repo urls while the default mirrors are probed
There should be a way to kill default mirror probing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 24.1-1 (as used in the rawhide boot image published 2015-09-02)
You can boot with inst.askmethod to disable the automatic repo selection.
Thank you for the information but it is not exactly user friendly isn't it ?
Of course that depends on what you want anaconda to be.
