Where did you download your CD image?  Have you verified that it is good with
media check?

I see you installed with the defaults.  Does this include package selection, or
did you make some changes there?
Comment 3 Peter Quiring 2006-01-23 22:35:36 EST
I create my CD by using wget on the following URL:
(Or from one of the mirrors)
And then just use the same .discinfo file from the original FC5t1 download.
This way I can burn a rawhide DVD image even if one package changes (hehe).
Well, the script to do the downloading and creating the DVD image is a little
complex but it seems to work (although the media check will not work this way -
I think this value is stored in the .discinfo file - how would I update that?).
I also wrote a C++ program that will read the index.html or .listing file
generated from wget and delete obsolete files (I should work for you guys ;).

If this is not a good idea, let me know and I'll download the FC5t2 images.

And I'm not making any changes to the package selections during install.

FYI - I've tried anaconda-10.91.7-1.i386.rpm - same problem.
Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2006-01-24 13:14:59 EST
Please test with the FC5t2 images as it's hard for us to verify against
self-created images against rawhide snapshots.

Does an nfs/http installation of rawhide just using the boot.iso work?
Comment 6 Peter Quiring 2006-01-25 16:12:41 EST
Ok, will do.

Yes, it works great.  I use the isolinux/isolinux.bin as the boot image.

I'll attach my scripts/source if you wanna see how I do it.  Using ftp is better
than http since Apache creates links within listings which makes a mess with wget.

OK, I tried the FC5t2 images and it works.  I will close this ticket (NOTABUG).
 My appologies.
