Description David Woodhouse 2006-04-06 09:23:47 EDT
We always used to be able to do network installs without a full set of RPMS
downloaded in advance -- if the installer wanted one which wasn't present, it'd
complain and its error dialog box would have a 'retry' button. So you could
fetch the missing RPM and click 'retry' and continue on your merry way....

It doesn't do that any more. The only option is 'reboot'.

In a lot of cases, we are already retrying multiple times before popping up an
error message.  We're using urlgrabber which has retry support.  However,
there's still room for improvement.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-04-06 11:29:56 EDT
Retrying before you pop up the dialog box which tells me which package you want
me to fetch and add to the Fedora/RPMS/ directory isn't going to work. You need
to tell me what you want and _then_ retry after I click the 'retry' button
(which doesn't exist any more).

This should be much better in FC6t1 and later.
