Description Alex CONRAD 2008-05-16 19:20:26 EDT
Description of problem:
During the wizard installation, during package selection, we can select
"Additional Fedora Software" as an additional repository. Althought, the
mirrorlist provided is:


and it should be:


(missing the "fedora-" part)

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the "Additional Fedora Software"
2. It will propose to enable network, OK.
3. After a short time, we get an error back.
Actual results:

Unable to read package metadata from repository. This may be due to a missing
repodata directory. Please ensure that your repository has been correctly generated.

Error getting reposiroty data for AdditionalFedoraSoftware, repository not found

Expected results:

Show me the packages...

Additional info:

... so I can install the missing XFCE packages from the DVD.

Should I open a bug for not being able to change the link? It seems that once
the error has shown up, even if I edit the link, I get the error back instantly
(it won't try to connect again). So I needed to create a new repository with the
correct link.

Blargh.  mdomsch -- is there any chance we can get mirrormanager to handle this
url so that we don't have people continuing to hit this over the life of F9? :-/
Comment 3 Matt Domsch 2008-05-19 16:00:00 EDT
Done.  MirrorManager now has a redirect in place, so requests to 'repo=9' will 
be sent to 'repo=fedora-9' content.

<RepositoryRedirect 91L fromRepo=u'9' toRepo=u'fedora-9'>
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-19 16:02:47 EDT
And we'll do something to fix things properly for F10
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2008-05-30 15:01:04 EDT
I've committed my stuff for using the /etc/yum.repos.d files to anaconda so this
should be better in time for the first test release of F10.
