Description Jan Pazdziora 2008-05-07 10:50:05 EDT
Description of problem:

The Satellite installer consists of two parts: install.pl and
install/install_main.pl. The first script installs packages from the bootstrap/
directory on the ISO, to provide Perl modules that the second scripts uses, and
then execs the second script.

The second script needs some packages which can be found in RHEL but are not in
the @base group. We could have installed them via the rhelrpms mechanism but
this installation only takes place in the second script.

The goal of the refactoring is that any packages needed by the second script are
installed via the rhelrpms process, which will make bootstrap/ obsolete.

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

Satellite 5.1.0 uses bootstrap/, and so do many versions before that.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get Satellite ISO, mount it, cd to it.
2. Do ls -d bootstrap.
Actual results:


Expected results:

ls: bootstrap: No such file or directory
