Description Brock Organ 2000-11-20 12:18:10 EST
When performing a CD install with packages from both CD 1 & CD 2, the user
is prompted to switch between CDs 1 & 2 multiple times, instead of just
once ...
Comment 1 Brock Organ 2000-12-07 15:16:31 EST
for example, in a custom install where only the "X Window System" package group
is selected, the CD changes are:

change from disc 1 -> 2:	python
change from disc 2 -> 1:	SysVinit
change from disc 1 -> 2:	util-linux
Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-12-07 18:31:25 EST

reopening bug ... a full unattended upgrade from 7.0 to qa0103.0 has several CD
switches, a few of which are listed below ...

example, after already switching multiple times between disc 1 & disc 2:

disc 2 -> disc 1 switch for package ypbind, then
disc 1 -> disc 2 switch for package dhcp

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 12 Wade Minter 2001-01-12 10:28:27 EST
This bug is even worse with Beta 2 - I did a custom install, choosing all but
3-4 categories (DNS server, dialup workstation, KDE, and 1-2 more).  I had to
put each CD in over 10 times each, often for just one package (insert new cd -->
install one package --> insert old CD).  The last quarter of the package install
took about 3/4 of the time of the entire install, due to the need to keep
swapping CDs.
Comment 13 Matt Wilson 2001-01-18 18:26:53 EST
should be fixed in beta3.
Comment 14 Brock Organ 2001-01-19 10:23:29 EST
there is only one CD switch in test tree qa0118.2 ... tested for both a minimal
install and custom full "Everything" install ... One CD switch is certainly
expected for an "Everything" install, should it be expected for a minimal
install as well?
Comment 15 Matt Wilson 2001-01-19 10:46:35 EST
You should find 0 switches for a minimal install on the 0119.x trees.  If not,
which package does it switch on?
Comment 16 Brock Organ 2001-02-09 16:39:03 EST
verified fixed in fisher public beta ...
