Description of problem:
anaconda fails while harddrive install (isos, usbdisk) on powermac g5.
"reading package metadata: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from anaconda: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try"
boot: linux text expert askmethod video=ofonly
FC5-test2-ppc-disc1.iso (not bootable)
0 > boot cd:,\ppc\mac\ofboot.b
boot: linux text askmethod video=ofonly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. select hardrive install
3. select sdc1 (isos, usbdisk)
4. ..., partition, eth0, hostname, timezone, password, failure!
Actual Results: reading package metadata: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from anaconda: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try
sda = sata = macosx
sdb = sata = install device
sdc = usbdisk
anaconda is using a deprcated SCSI ioctl, please convert it to SG_IO
This also happens when using text mode installation on x86 systems. Anaconda
fails to mount the iso images in text mode only.
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.
Can you switch to tty2, grab /tmp/anaconda.log and attach it here?
Created attachment 123843 [details]
fc5t2 ppc boot.iso hdinst anaconda.log
here is the /tmp/anaconda.log
bootmedium was the fc5t2-ppc-boot.iso
It happened on my X86 when I use the DVD iso image for hard drive installation.
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:
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.
