No retry option when cdrom have hard-error
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
When we have an error at a CD-rom at installation, the error dialog do not show
retry option, just restart system. This is ugly, man, sometimes we are at CD #5
and get an error and need to start the installation from begining.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin installation with CD
2. put a CD-ROM with problem (scratch)
3. the error dialog don't have a 'retry' button
4. Then you need to restart ALL the installation
just restart button
we need a retry button too
I have never had a Fedora install go thru without some CD problem. However
telling it to 'retry' has always fixed the problem (OK, sometimes Ive had
to take the CD out clean it and try again, but never a complete failure).
We need the 'retry' option back, the current code doesnt make any sense.
Why a reboot button when your only option is to reboot?
Till this gets fixed Ill be reading all 5 CDs in to disk then doing a DISK
or FTP install, it will save the few working neurons from self destructing.
