Description Miguel Freitas 2000-10-27 12:36:25 EDT
package: anaconda-runtime

  When running genhdlist I made a mistake putting the same RPM on both instalation CDs. It gave no error on this. During the instalation anaconda asked for a disk numbered -2167455... (don't remember the exact number was about -2x10^31).

  I think you should improve genhdlist to warn about duplicated files and anaconda to do some sanity checkings before asking for something like that...
