Description Stewart Adam 2008-05-07 18:40:07 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:

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
Repository file not found, installer exits

Expected results:
Repository file is not found, install continues

Additional info:
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.

Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report?  Thanks.
Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2008-05-28 18:29:21 EDT
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
