Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 366331
The disk RHEL5.1-Server-20071017.0-ia64-compat-layer-i386.iso contains no autorun file
Last modified: 2011-07-21 02:40:53 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL5.1-Server-20071017.0-ia64-compat-layer-i386.iso does not contains
autorun file, so rpm files on that disk can only be installed manully, which
is not a suitable way for customers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.in the last step, select “install additional disk”and put in the disk
There is no windows prompted for install
There is autorun windows prompted for install
Other than missing autorun file, also need to take care of rpm dependency
issue. One possible solution could be like:
1. Add the missing autorun file in the compat CD;
2. In the release note or readme or somewhere in the compat CD, tell the
customer which IA64 rpms are depended and how to install them either manually
or through installer.
3. The installer checks dependency. If dependency fails, report the failure
and quit the failed rpm installation. Please don’t do force or nodeps
installation. That’s wrong and can cause complex problems during runtime.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
If I spin a compat-layer CD with the modified autorun, could you test it? I'd like to make sure that we actually do have the fix in hand before requesting an exception.
I can test this if you spin a test CD. I have an ia64 box ready for

It's doubtful that we're going to be able to address this issue in RHEL5. Do you want us to keep proposing it for new releases?
this bug is already approved for RHEL 5.7.
Tested with snapshot #1 as described in comment #0. I was able to install all compatlayer packages and corresponding dependencies.
