Description Nils Philippsen 2008-03-27 13:20:01 EDT
Description of problem:
When anaconda needs to mount a new ISO image onto /mnt/source, it just stays
there "reattempting to download" some package (which would be on the next ISO

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda as of F9 beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from CD ISO images via NFS
Actual results:
"reattempting to download ..." -> fails, offers "retry/reboot"

Expected results:
- umounts old image, mounts next image autonomously
- doesn't attempt to "download" a pkg file multiple times when installing
(quasi-) locally via NFS

Additional info:
I umounted the old image and mounted the new one manually, which got me to a
certain point when it barfed over the liferea pkg file on the 5th disk, which
was corrupt.

This is working fine for me with anaconda-, both booting off the
netinst.iso and without.  Is there anything particular that you are doing?  Can
you attach the /tmp/anaconda.log if you are still seeing problems here?
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2008-04-01 09:29:47 EDT
The beta was shipped with -- have you fixed something in between or
shall we investigate this further?
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-04-01 11:20:08 EDT
Yes, there were some nfsiso-specific fixes since
Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2008-04-01 12:19:49 EDT
In that case let's close it.
