Anaconda fails to work with non-flat repositories
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
I've created a yum repository and attempted to tell anaconda to use it
during the package selection phase. I got an error like "Unable to fetch
repodata/comps.xml, No more mirrors to try" (or something similar). My
repository was layouted like this:
As per tcpdump and webserver logs (the repository was accessible via http),
it seemed that anaconda downloaded the comps.xml correctly. When I changed
the layout to look like this, anaconda finally accepted the repository:
If this is a design issue, it would be at least nice to get a somewhat
better error message.
Did the repodata properly reference the packages under packages1/, etc?

Jeremy: I did not use the fc6 anaconda with such repositories since I reported
this. Yesterday I installed Rawhide (the repodata created in Rawhide as well)
correctly with the repository laid as described above.
If I understand comment #3 correctly, this is no longer an issue. Feel free to
reopen this bug if you are continuing to see this problem, though.
