Description Luis Cordova 2008-01-31 13:28:36 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 8 generates a dump while installing octave.
Octave says it needs certain libraries. Then installer asks to insert Fedora 
8 DVD. Then it crashes generating dump. Then I try to install again and 
nothing is asked for.
Instead all goes well and octave gets installed.

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

How reproducible:
Install Octave in Fedora 8 from a configuration where there is no Octave 
previously installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Octave through the GUI for adding and removing packages.
2.Do not insert DVD. And try to accept. Nothing happens.
4.Try again and insert DVD whenever asked.
5.Installation crashes.
6.Try again. Success.
Actual results:
Dump generated.

Expected results:
No dump generated.

I have never had problems installing octave from the command line, and the
attachment you included is a pirut dump and has nothing to do (as far as I can
tell) with octave. I'm reassigning this to pirut (the GUI installer program).

Were you actively doing anything with the CD when this occurred?  I've gone
ahead and made a change to avoid this in the future, though.
