Description Ben 2007-02-19 07:29:38 EST
Description of problem:

Installing manually via HTTP from a URL of the form
http://<server>/redhat/RHEL5/ (with Server/ beneath that) I found at least 1250
packages (in the install type I was doing) which the installer seemed to be
trying to download from [...]/RHEL6/ instead.  Initially I thought this was just
for RPMs with fc6 in the filename.  But apparently not.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL 5 beta 2.  Serving Apache is httpd-2.0.52-28 from a RHEL 4 box.


How reproducible:

Every time, for me anyway!


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy contents of RHEL 5 beta 2 ISOs to a web-accessible directory called
"RHEL5" with /Server/ beneath it.
2. Install from USB key using the vmlinuz and initrd.img from Disk 1's
images/pxeboot/ directory.
3. Point installer at URL in 1.
4. Choose any kind of package selection which includes the packages listed in
the attached file.


Actual results:

Failure to install those packages until a symlink from RHEL5 to RHEL6 was
created.  Install then proceeded as normal.

Expected results:

Not to fail on asking for those packages.  To continue to ask for packages from
the correct directory.


Additional info:

Dunno.  Seems to work perfectly when there's no number in the directory, i.e.
http://<server>/redhat/RHbeta/

Weird huh?

Not really that weird [to me] as I added code to handle people installing from
an http server with disc# directories.  On failure, I would increment the number
and try again.  We've fixed some of this (if not all in rawhide), so it
shouldn't be too much of a problem to fix.
