Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457583
modifying default repo to specify different URL fails
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:15:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I boot the F10 Alpha installer. It's by default pointed at a HTTP mirrorlist.
I edit the repo, change it to
It accepts it. If I try to continue the install, it fails downloading the metadata.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If I try to re-edit, the same mirrorlist is the starting point, not whatever I
edited it to before.
I've made a good bit of progress on this - it now takes the new URL, creates a new repo with that URL to take the place of the old one, and then attempts to download the new repodata. I then hit a traceback due to problems with the primarydb being empty.
Attaching a patch against rawhide that simplifies a lot of the repo handling (worked on with input from Seth) and the traceback I'm getting. Also reassigning to Jeremy, who might have a clue how to fix this.

set of patches to fix
Here's a set of patches which looks like it fixes things, although I want to hold off until post-beta to avoid destabilizing things
Basically, we move actual package selection later so that we don't have packages in the tsInfo referencing a repo which has gone away.
Marking for re-testing.
