Description of problem:
I tried an install of rawhide from 20071026 via HTTP and when it downloads the
header for authconfig-gtk-5.3.18-1.fc8, it fails with an error. I don't see any
problems with the package on the web server. I downloaded it successfully using
wget from the ALT-F2 console of the system being installed. The SHA1 sum
matched the package on the web server and the repodata's SHA1 for that package.
The package verified with rpm -Kv. So this appears to be an anaconda bug?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start http install
2. uncheck all package groups, but don't customize package list
3. when install starts, note error dialog about corrupt authconfig-gtk package
The file authconfig-gtk-5.3.18-1.fc8 cannot be opened. This is due to a missing
file, a corrupt package or media. Please verify your installation source.
If you exit, your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely
The package seems to be fine. Anaconda should process the downloaded file properly.
I'm using VNC-based installation.
Sorry, I realized that my rawhide repository had been updated in the middle of
the install, so the repodata at the beginning of the install didn't match the
packages that appeared later.
