Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 41733
PCMCIA Boot Disks do not install Correctly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:21 EDT
Description of Problem:
I just installed RH7.1 from the Boot Disk Images for PCMCIA. Through out
the install it never asked for the Second install CD, and because of that
Xfree86 was installed incorrectly, it was missing files. I found the
missing files on the Second CD, X86_SVGA to be exact. I am not sure what
other software may be missing or broken, because the install says it
completed with no Errors.
It is Far Worst than I thought
I am missing tons of Key Software(gcc, automake & conf, Xfree stuff, devel libs)
It completely skipped a disk full of apps I told it to install.
If there is a bug, it definitely has nothing to do with XFree86. XFree86
for all intents and purposes is "video drivers", the basis of the GUI
in Linux. The install program is called anaconda. Reassigning.
I have not seen this behavior before. I am confused as to how this could
happen, because there is no code in the installer to even allow skipping the
second cd. Is this reproducible (i.e. can you reinstall and try again)?
