not detect the installable tree properly on nfs install
Last modified: 2008-07-10 17:07:24 EDT
Description of problem:
anaconda doesn't do the sanity check when mounting via nfs. this behavior
introduces "Unable to read package metadata" error after stage2 is coming.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select nfs as the install method
2.type valid nfs server and non-Fedora directory
passed the local media detection.
should be failed before stage2 is coming.
Does the NFS directory you are providing actually contain repodata?
No, not at all. I'm expecting here it should be failed during the local media
detection or so, and get back to the dialog inputs the nfs server and the directory.
I don't think there's anything we can do for F9, then. The real plan here is to
add support for NFS to the repo editor in stage2 so you can make corrections
there. In general we are trying to move this sort of stuff out of loader and
into stage2 where it's much easier. We certainly don't want to add checks for
repodata into the loader.
I'll be looking at this immediately after F9 goes out.
Sure. that sounds nice for future release. how about any workaround for F-9
then? apparently the repo editor doesn't support nfs so far as you said you will
do after F-9 is out. I have no idea except rebooting though.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
