Description Olivier BONHOMME 2007-03-12 12:53:53 UTC
Description of problem:

When the CD-ROM is mounted in the beginning of the installation, the block
device is deleted in the /tmp directory. Then, it is impossible to mount again
the CD-ROM while the postinst stage.

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

Fedora Core 6 - Anaconda 11

How reproducible:

Making a custom installer and try to access the CD-ROM from a shell while the
installation

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a custom installer using buildinstall from anaconda-runtime package.
2. Burn an iso image
3. Try to install the system
4 .When anaconda is started (after the CD-ROM detection), open a shell and list
the /tmp directory
  
Actual results:

The /tmp/cdrom device is not present.

Expected results:

The /tmp/cdrom should be already present.

Additional info:

It's mountable, but you have to find and mount the actual device node.  This is
intentional

Do you mean by looking in the /proc filesystem ? (That's the way I did)

Anyway, I think that this case should be documented in the official anaconda
documentation. On all documentations I found, people suppose that the device
node is still available
