Description Jasper O. Hartline 2006-01-19 11:26:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1

Description of problem:
Using Anaconda 10.91.4-1 from the development repositories
and createrepo-0.4.3-5.1 which is also from development (or updates-testing)
I create a repo like so: createrepo -g comps.xml /<path>/RPMS
and it finishes. However, while trying to use Anaconda with Kadischi
Anaconda drops with an exception right at installing packages (0%)

Missing lftp-3.3.5-4.i386.rpm from repo: anaconda
(which is in /tmp/yum.conf.)

To my knowledge I am using createrepo correctly.
This is all done on an FC5t2 Fedora Core machine.
I'll attach the createrepo.log I've create with:
createrepo -g comps.xml /pub/test/Fedora/RPMS
you will see lftp is processed as package number 66.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. createrepo -g comps.xml /pub/test/Fedora/RPMS
2. kadischi --text /pub /tmp/test2.iso
3. Anaconda Excpetion, missing lftp-3.3.5-4.i386.rpm 

Actual Results:  Fatal Anaconda exception, missing package lftp.

Expected Results:  Anaconda should read in the repodata correctly.

Additional info:

Attached is createrepo.log, lftp is processed as package 66.

Your createrepo is incorrect for anaconda (we need to document the new way to do
things), for an nfs/http install you simply need to do:

cd /pub/test
createrepo -g Fedora/base/comps.xml .

For media based installs you have to use pkgorder and splittree.py and create a
split metadata using: 

createrepo -g Fedora/base/comps.xml --split -q -u media://<discinfo stamp>
--basedir /pub/test i386

(assuming /pub/test has the disc1 ... N dirs in)
