Description Christoph Wickert 2007-10-04 13:06:17 EDT
Description of problem:
All the kickstart files in /usr/share/livecd-tools still refer to the URLs
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/os and 
but the directories "core" and "extras" are empty now.

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

How reproducible:
Actual results:
Nice python traceback ending with 
"yum.Errors.NoMoreMirrorsRepoError: failure: repodata/comps-f7.xml from u7:
[Errno 256] No more mirrors to try."

Additional info:
Has already been fixed in rawhide. Any chance to get this as an update for F7?
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-05 10:10:12 EDT
Yes, the idea is to put out an update in the near future.  Just waiting to make
sure that changes have actually settled down first.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2008-05-08 01:28:55 EDT
I think this can be closed?
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2008-05-08 03:40:58 EDT
Not really because there still is no update for F7.
Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2008-05-10 17:09:39 EDT
Well, there actually WAS an update, but livecd-tools-009-3.fc7 does not address
this bug.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:37:28 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-27 15:13:10 EDT
Not going to change the F7 configs at this point as anyone who hits it can
easily modify them on their own and later releases are fine.
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2008-05-31 04:33:26 EDT
