Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 315121
Within Anaconda it sould be possible to change the install-mirror
Last modified: 2008-01-22 14:43:08 EST
Description of problem:
If you try to do a network-update from the minimal-boot-cd, and your chosen
(ftp) mirror is under heavy load, it quite often happens, that anaconda is not
able to fetch a needed package.
Anaconda then suggests, that you "sould coose a different mirror", however only
the two buttons: "reboot" and "retry" are presented.
If you are REALLY patient, "retry" will get you through the installation process ;-)
Reboot is specifically warned upon, since it leaves you with an halfupdated system.
So, another button like "Choose Mirror" would really be handsome.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda that ships with F7 minimal-boot cd
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an network-update from FC6 to F7
2. choose a mirror with high load (e.g. the official fedora source ;-) )
3. start away
Inconvenient loss of an huge amount of time
Conveniant installation procedure
I am working on this sort of thing right now for F9. Stay tuned.
