Description Jeremy Katz 2000-06-22 05:05:20 UTC
During a network install, if an rpm to be installed isn't found (like with
the situation described in bugzilla #12804), anaconda fails very
ungracefully.  No traceback on the gui screen and can't get to tty1 to
check for a traceback there, but it's a package I know is on the second cd
and thus not there

Comment 1 Brock Organ 2000-06-27 20:45:08 UTC
verified ... a traceback occurs using TUI ... thanks for the report!

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2000-07-30 17:25:22 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-01 18:51:58 UTC
We are in a UI freeze so we cannot add screens/dialogs at this time - hopefully
the original issue of installing an RPM which is on another CDROM does not occur
in post-beta5 builds.

I will add 'better exception handling' to our feature list for the next release.
