Comment 1 Patrick Devine 2005-10-14 18:10:05 UTC
I just realized I ran the diff backward.  You want the line to be "and not
h[1000003]:" instead of "and h[1000003] == None".

This bugfix seems to have introduced a serious bug into CentOS 3.7 build - we
had cd swapping at least 10 times to install. I removed this bugfix and it is
working fine.

Comment 8 Lance Davis 2006-04-04 21:01:27 UTC
And anyway - surely not defining the package order w/genhdlist is the bug - not
what anaconda then does with it !!
