This also happens when using text mode installation on x86 systems.  Anaconda 
fails to mount the iso images in text mode only.
Comment 2 Christian Huebner 2006-01-23 13:50:07 EST
When trying to net-install FC5 test2 it searches for repodata.xml in
Fedora/repodata and Fedora/disc1/repodata, but the repodata directory is in the
root directory of the CD. This looks like the same bug to me so I am not filing
a new one.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-28 00:17:03 EST
Can you switch to tty2, grab /tmp/anaconda.log and attach it here?

It happened on my X86 when I use the DVD iso image for hard drive installation.
Comment 6 shrek-m 2006-04-18 15:08:15 EDT
i did not tried a hdinstall again only net-installs which were mostly ok.

"mac os x"
"mac os x server"

I ran into the same issue for network install.  I tailed the access_log for my httpd and the files in RPMS 
was giving a 404.  It turns out that the directory mapping in the httpd.conf file was a little off and did 
not accommodate the RPMS and the repodata directory.

Note: I copied the directories from the FC-5-i386-DVD.iso  and -not- the CD images.  The end result, I 
think, should be the same anyway...

Here is my structure now:

    --netowrk install

My repodata directory earlier was at the same level as the RPMS and base.  Anyway, after setup, there 
are a couple of tests that can be run from your favority web browser or wget


Both should succeed.  If they don't, check your configs for the http server.
