Description Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-11-02 07:50:26 EST
Description of problem:

When using a customly created CD set that includes all packages in Fedora rawhide at this moment (all 14304), the CD set consists of 27 (!) discs. Selecting all groups available in the package selection dialog, including all optional packages, but for the @*-support groups, the installation requires all 27 discs.

The dialog asking for confirmation titled "Required Install Media", when listing all of these 27 discs, is too large on some displays (see screenshot).

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a x86_64 "Everything" CD set:
1b. yum install revisor-unity
1c. revisor --cli --config /etc/revisor-unity/revisor.conf --model rawhide-x86_64-everything
2. Boot from CD1
3. Select all optional packages from all groups during the installation
Actual results:

See http://www.kanarip.com/~jmeeuwen/rawhide-x86_64-everything-cd-set-install.png

Expected results:

Dunno, actually. Maybe this "requires" a change in how the list of required media is displayed.

Additional info:

Seems like a little moot bug report, and is absolutely no show-stopper, of course.

This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
