Description Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2004-09-25 21:00:12 UTC
Description of problem:
I was installing fc3t2 over nfs to a test pc, and in order to don't
use so many cd's, i burned the rescuecd on a RW, and booted with
"linux askmethod mediacheck". I then specified that it should use the
location "" as install location - a
folder which contained the four fc3t2 images, the rescuecd image, and
two clarkconnect iso's.

All seemed to work fine (exept it was a little strange that mediacheck
 first checked cd1, then 3, 4, and at last cd 2...) All which where
proven OK.

When anaconda then tried to "change cd" to cd2 in order to install the
package "docbook-dtds-1.0-24.noarch.rpm" i got the message that the
file did not exist.

I then tried to move the four images to a folder of its own - and all
went according to plan.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Anaconda screwed up with no warning

Expected results:
Anaconda should not screw up, or should at least warn/refuse to install.

There are a few other bugs on this.  Unfortunately, it's a little bit
tricky to get right, hence at present, the instructions are to only
have the ISOs for one release present in the directory you're
installing from.
