Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209966
--ignoremissing is ignored
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:35 EST
Description of problem:
In ks.cfg, --ignoremissing is ignored
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5 CLient BETA1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Expand installation tree onto hard disk
2. Remove 'cairo-java' packages as they are currently broken.
3. Point client at ks.cfg containing --ignoremissing and using install tree
4. attempt install
An error occurs saying package is missing, retry or abort.
Install should have progressed ignoring the missing packages
Did you regenerate the metadata for the repository?
--ignoremissing only says to ignore packages which are specified in %packages
which are not present in the tree metadata.
Ahh, my mistake. I went looking for the anaconda docs and found that they still
referred to comps.xml not the yum .xml.gz files. Where are the updated docs?
I've updated the documentation that ships with anaconda on the HEAD CVS branch.
This is the source for the documentation on the website. I don't think they
pull updated documentation at any point during the update cycle, though. I'll
close this one out as NEXTRELEASE for now. If it's really critical, reopen and
we can reassign to the docs team to see what they think.
