Description of problem:
Anaconda fails if it's given a directory containing ISOs to install
from, as opposed to one containing an exploded tree. The problem is
that, when looking for the iso image containing disc1, it
loopback-mounts the iso, then loopback-mounts a stage file in there
into /mnt/runtime, but then, instead of umounting /mnt/runtime, it
umounts /tmp/runtime, so the loopback device remains busy, and the iso
loopback mount can't be umounted. Then, when it proceeds to mount the
iso and the stage image for the install, it fails because the loop
devices are busy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Point anaconda at a tree containing install isos
Actual Results: It claims the directory tree does not contain an
installable tree. VT3 shows the failure to umount and the failure to
Expected Results: It worked in FC3.
I have a patch that I'll attach momentarily.
Created attachment 111899 [details]
(untested) patch that fixes the likely cut&pasto
Thanks for the patch - it's applied and will go into the next anaconda build.

If you download the anacdonda files from
they are still broken and you can't do a hardisk install. There don't seem to be
any new ones in the updates tree. Where do I get them from ?
Did you try the `development' tree (fedora/linux/core/development/...)? It
should be there. And then, there's the upcoming FC4test2, in which this is
going to work (confirmed with an internal compose last night).
