Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
Description of problem:
In FC6 Prerelease's installer, if you deselect "Office & productivity" and then
select it again, Anaconda will ask for network connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time. Also happens with other repositories in installer that are offline.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installing.
2. Don't configure the network.
3. Get to repository selection page and select "Software & development".

Installer should be able to proceed with using package repositories that are on
DVD without network connectivity.
It's logical to ask for network connection when using Fedora Extras, but not
for Core. I'm pretty sure this is not same bug as mentioned in release
announcement by Jeremy Katz. I, however, can't verify that because if
downloaded new installer image I would already be connected, and this wouldn't
Use the updates.img that was referenced in the announcement and you won't hit this.
