Last modified: 2008-06-21 16:00:43 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):
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.
Unable to read package metadata from repository. This may be due to a missing

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? :-/
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'>
And we'll do something to fix things properly for F10
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.
