Description Jari Takkala 2008-06-12 09:30:36 EDT
Description of problem:
If I specify additional repo's in my kickstart config file, the installer does
not appear to create these additional repos in /etc/yum.repos.d/. The installer
also does not include the repo options in /root/anaconda-ks.cfg after the
install completes.

How reproducible:
Create a kickstart script with a repo option, and perform a kickstart install.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create kickstart script with a custom repo option.
2. Do a kickstart install using the script.
3. Check /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.
Actual results:
/etc/yum.repos.d/ does not contain the new repository.

Expected results:
/etc/yum.repos.d/ should contain a file with the repository configuration
specified in the kickstart script.

Additional info:
for info on this config option.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-06-16 09:20:02 EDT
We're not writing them out in /etc/yum.repos.d on purpose.  I no longer remember
the precise reasoning for this, but I remember there definitely was a reason. 
We should probably investigate this for F10 so it has a chance of being fixed in

As far as not including them in the anaconda-ks.cfg file, future versions of
RHEL will simply copy the input kickstart file to the output, so whatever you
specified will get preserved.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-06-21 17:08:15 EDT
Moving this to Fedora since we're unlikely to ever get this into a RHEL update
release and that's the proper place to fix it anyway.
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2008-07-17 12:17:00 EDT
For me it seems to add the last one:

url --url=http://<fedora>
repo --name=<first>
repo --name=<second>

The installer uses the second repository but not the first and I get missing
package errors.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-08-29 16:35:02 EDT
Gah, yes I'm seeing the same thing caused by a really stupid typo.  This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
Comment 5 Orion Poplawski 2008-09-08 12:00:36 EDT
Still a problem.

Repo ks config:

url --url=http://fedora.cora.nwra.com/fedora/linux/development/i386/os
repo --name=CoRA --baseurl=http://sw.cora.nwra.com/fedora/CoRPMS/fcdevelopment/i386/
repo --name=livna --baseurl=http://livna.cora.nwra.com/development/i386/
repo --name=adobe-linux --baseurl=http://adobe.cora.nwra.com/linux/i386/

anaconda.log repo info:

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2008-09-08 12:49:56 EDT
What version of anaconda are you using?
Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2008-09-08 12:53:30 EDT
I'm using
Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2008-09-08 13:26:19 EDT
Hm, I'm definitely not seeing this with today's rawhide.
Comment 9 Orion Poplawski 2008-09-08 13:58:23 EDT
Sorry, my mirror copy was not working properly.

I'm getting cannot find stage2.img errors now (they seem to be missing), but that's another issue.
Comment 10 Chris Lumens 2008-09-08 14:02:37 EDT
Yeah, file that as a separate bug please.
