Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 465556
Exception in anaconda due to adding nonexistent rpm repo.
Last modified: 2009-02-16 15:32:28 EST
Description of problem:
I accidentally tried to add a livna rpm repository that does not exist i.e. I wrote a repository URL that is actually a 404.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. During installation of Fedora 10 beta add a third party repo
2. but mistype URL...
3. and see an unhandeled exception
Anaconda crashes with exception, user is asked to report it to bugzilla
Error message informing of the erroneous url.
I could not send the exception traceback message because of an other bug.
A similar error happenes if one adds two rpm repos and tries to give them them identical names.
I believe this should be fixed as part of the big repo editing patches Jeremy committed after the beta. Is there any chance you could test rawhide tomorrow (or later) and see if you're still hitting the same problem? A quick test I ran here didn't reproduce the issue.
I've done some more testing. It is the typos that's causing the crash.
Please make some protection mechanism here.
I havn't been able to test against rawhide, since I still haven't been able to install Fedora because of some other bugs.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
