Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2005-06-03 08:21:56 EDT
aha - the comps.xml from the extras cd has overwritten the comps.xml from the
install cds.  Please replace with the real comps.xml.  Please recreate your tree
not using the Extras (non-free) CD or leaving out that iso from an nfsiso setup.

Comment 4 TK 2005-06-03 10:06:46 EDT
you are right - I copied all 9 cd's into one nfs-share in an ascending cd - 
order. That of course was the wrong order !

Thank you for your quick help
