Description Thomas Widhalm 2006-09-26 05:58:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to install FC6t3 from remote. I took an installed CentOS box, copied
vmlinuz and initrd.img to /boot and booted with arguments 
"vnc vncpassword=**** lang=de_DE keymap=de resolution=800x600 ip=***.***.***.***
netmask= gateway=***.***.***.*** dns=***.***.***.***
method=[address of my local webserver - http protocol]"

The installation started as expected but while reading the package information,
I got an error that anaconda is missing a package. I pushed the button to retry
and the bug report showed up.

How reproducible:
Install from remote source via http, if package is missing, press "Retry"

Actual results:
Anaconda crashes

Expected results:
Anaconda should retry getting the package

I believe I've fixed this in Rawhide after FC6.  Looks like the problem was that
it's not falling over to the next mirror like it should be.  If you can test a
post-FC6 rawhide tree, that would be helpful.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
