Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 381651
Missing packages in x86_64 DVD
Last modified: 2008-08-06 16:44:48 EDT
Description of problem:
There are missing packages in the x86_64 DVD for FC8. The DVD checks out fine,
so I don't think it's an issue with my DVD. I tried installing twice, opting to
chose to select the packages details during installation rather than afterward
(another fiasco if that's chosen - another Bugzilla). The first time, I chose
to add some legacy libraries development & software support. Part way through,
the installer complains about the not finding (excuse any typos)
"glibc-devel-2.7-2.86_64.rpm". I had no choice but to reset at that point.
After reboot, I selected the packages again, but leaving off legacy support.
This time it pukes on "oprofile-gui-0.9.3-6fc8.x86_64.rpm".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 8
Install the software, but chose to select package details prior to installation.
When selecting package details, chose legacy support. That -should- pick up
the error concerning glibc. I don't know what package I selected to pick up
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install, but chose to select package details prior to installation.
2. When selecting package details, chose legacy support.
3. Continue the install.
Failed installation. Must reboot. Major frowny face.
Good installation. Smiley face.
Another point - the packages -are- there if you look at the DVD, but for some
odd reason they're not being picked up.
Did you verify your media?
Yes, I ran the media check before starting the install. Also, I noticed this
problem only occurs if I chose "Fedora Extras" (or whatever the option is just
before you can select package details). If I do not chose "Fedora Extras",
everything seems to go OK.
Are you able to reproduce this bug in Fedora 9?
