misleading error when enabling extras during anaconda install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
misleading error when enabling extras during anaconda install, when access to
fedora extras isn't available because anaconda is trying to go to the internet
when I'm doing a local network http based install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
install, enable Fedora Extras on the package selection screen, since my test
area can't reach the Internet, anaconda will eventually time out trying to get
the extra's meta data.
Steps to Reproduce:
the ugly error message attached -- note, clicking the retry brings up another
ugly error message, that allows the user to return to the package selection
area, however the error message in the attached image makes it appear as though
my install is over.
anaconda to dispaly a clean error indicating that the extras repo isn't
accessible AND the option to configure extras access for over the local network
at install time

misleading error message
There should be a better error message here at least... we might not really be
able to do any network reconfiguration in FC6
Got a similar, network wasn't configures, but the installer didn't timeout when
I selected the extras packages. Which left the installer in a state from which
there was not recovery (unless you knew to go to another virtual console to
reboot the box).
