The bug manifests after I try to install again the fedora Core 10 onto a partition were a previous installation was interrupted by a bad package read from the DVD disk. I not formatted the media after give it (using the custom disk partitioning system), or erase the previous broken installation by hand.
I select to choose the package to install in anaconda (For adding KDE desktop) and the bug appears after the dependency testing.

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rpmUtils/miscutils.py", line 401, in hdrFromPackage
    raise rpmUtils.RpmUtilsError, "RPM Error opening Package"
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/packages.py", line 593, in returnHeaderFromPackage
    hdr = rpmUtils.miscutils.hdrFromPackage(ts, rpmfile)

...at a guess I'd say the media was bad ... if you have something half installed you are probably better off making sure the new fedora-release is installed, and running "yum update".

I suspect a cdrom reader failure in read (not the media bad as it has pass the preliminary test a week ago). Maybe the cdrom reader is now broken and need to be replaced.
