Description Mary Ellen Foster 2005-11-23 23:24:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.5; Linux) KHTML/3.5.0 (like Gecko) Kubuntu 6.04 Dapper

Description of problem:
This is probably not unexpected ... I just tried an HTTP install of FC5T1 from 
mirrorservice.org, and it seems to have an incomplete set of RPMs. So I went 
through the whole configuration process, and then when it started to download 
things I it didn't find libXext and exited. 
 
I can't see that this can be much better ... but at least it should fail in a 
less scary way. I'll attach the "anacdump.txt" file that I copied to my other 
laptop (cool feature!). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to do a network install of FC5T1 using an incompletely synchronised 
mirror.

Yeah, handling of package download errors is currently very poor.  On the list
to be sure is fixed before release

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-21 03:54:05 UTC
This should be handled properly now
