installer hangs on absent package
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Workstation install, GNOME, KDE, and Games offerred, GNOME and Games
selected, installation gets 96% through and stalls on tetex package.
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
I've duplicated this on another Alpha and an Intel box. I think a 'didn't
find the package, skipping . . .' would be useful.
this problem occured when trying to install from an incomplete tree (i386-disc1)
vs a complete tree (i386) ...
Then what is the solution to this? Shouldn't anaconda ask for another CD? And
how would this work
over NFS? The way I've had to get through the install is copy the CD to a
hardisk and fill in the missing
packages with the one off the beta ftp site. Then redo the NFS install from this
I'm not sure how this bug is closed...I think it's pretty important.
