Installer problem when uninstalling Examples and Demo or Documenation categories using the installer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:39:17 EDT
Description of problem:
This is actually a installer problem, but I couldn't find it as a product to
report this bug against.
After the Documentation category is installed, when bringing up the Installer
again, only the Documentation and are shown as installed, so I unchecked those
categories to uninstall, but the installer goes blank with a traceback. It seems
like that when only partial packages from a category is installed, the installer
does not consider it being installed, and won't let you select packages from
that category to be uninstalled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Installer and install only the Documentation category and finish the
2. Start Installer again and try to uninstall the Client, Documentation categories
Installer goes blank with a traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/InstallDruid.py", line 250, in
assert (install_list !=  or remove_list !=)
The same happens when uninstalling the Examples and Demo category
This happens on PPC and IA64 all the time now.
Once something is is installed, and the user tries to uninstall, then regardless
of category selected for the uninstallation, the next installer page is blank
and that traceback appears.
