Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445608
Changing the architecture in repository path (network installation) fails
Last modified: 2008-06-03 10:29:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I've burned the boot.iso from today's rawhide (F9RC1) and booted up to do a
network install. I accidentally entered
http://mirrors.kernels.org/fedora/development/i386/os/, so fetching repodata
failed and I requested to edit the repo file. I fixed the typo as well as
changed i386 to x86_64 like this:
http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/i386/os/. An error then appeared
saying "Fedora-20080507-repo.x86_64 could not be found" (filename may not be
exactly correct, but it was something along those lines with x86_64 at the end)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
20080507 rawhide: 126.96.36.199-1.fc9.x86_64
I didn't test it more than once, but the "retry" button presented the error
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a network install from boot.iso
2. Enter a typo in the hostname and/or path and use a "would-be" path for i386
3. Correct the typo and switch to a x86_64 repo path
Repository file not found, installer exits
Repository file is not found, install continues
I'm assuming if Anaconda places arches in repo filename, it just needs to rename
the original file ending in .i386 to .x86_64 and then change the baseurl=
according to the user's input.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report? Thanks.
I tried to reproduce the bug but it wanted to partition before I could access
the repo configuration page, so I'll get back to you later once I have a machine
with a spare drive/partition.
Closing this. If you reproduce the bug, please reopen and attach anaconda.log
