Description Bill Jones 2006-01-23 20:20:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The FC5T2 Boot CD iso only looks for ISO fiels during local Harddrive install -- the FC5T2 Rescue ISO actually looks for locally available files during a local Hardrive install __ HOWEVER the /tmp/yum.conf file is written too late to edit and the installation fails.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot off the ppc rescue CD and type linux [Enter]
2.  Choose Hard drive as the installation method
3.  After you enter the root password the installation immediately fails

Actual Results:  The installation fails because it is writing the yum.conf file too late to actually edit it for the correct settings.

Expected Results:  The /tmp/yum.conf file should be written earlier in the Steps...

The TGz file contains text files showing the error and system logs during the
installation process.

Also, the Apple Disk Label is not being properly written during system build to
a NEW (raw) Hard Drive.
