Description John Cagle 2000-07-28 15:02:30 EDT
At the end of a successful installation, Anaconda doesn't eject CD if only CD#1 is used during installation.

On installations that ask for CD#2, it will properly eject CD#2 when finished.

I think this bug first showed up in beta 4.

To reproduce, just do a simple server installation - it won't ask for CD#2 and it won't eject CD#1.

On pinstripe and doing a TUI install (although I suspect the same is true for

Does not eject cdrom if a one-cd install.  If it is a two-cdrom instal, the
first cdrom is ejected and a prompt is issued for the second cdrom.  However, at
the end, the 2nd cdron is not ejected.

John, the bug you reported is fixed internally. Unfortuantely, I broke something
else at the
same time.

Matt, can you help ot here as I'm not in the office?
Comment 7 Brock Organ 2000-08-04 11:20:33 EDT
fix verified in internal pinstripe build ...
Comment 8 Brock Organ 2000-08-04 11:26:33 EDT
also noted that the large rhinstall.img file is placed on the partiton with the
most disk space ...
Comment 9 Andrea Borgia 2000-08-09 09:20:28 EDT
Installed Pinstripe from scratch, only 1 cd was used and it was *NOT* ejected at the end.
Comment 10 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-09 09:50:33 EDT
Fixed internally and verified.
