Description of problem:
Anaconda dumped with rpm:error match tag missing after doing a genhdlist 
on an modified and unmodified copy of cdrom for network installs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cp -a /mnt/cdrom/* ~/cd1
2. cp -a /mnt/cdrom/* ~/cd2   - the second cd
3. add rpm to /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
4. /usr/lib/anaconda/genhdlist --withnumbers --hdlist 
~/cd1/RedHat/RPMS/base/hdinst ~/cd1 ~/cd2
5. do a nfs install to this machine
6. error is generated	

Actual Results:  you really want the floppy dump?

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 520, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1126, in run
    rc = apply (step[1](), args)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 551, in 
    if todo.doInstall ():
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1773, in 
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 26, in 
    hdlist.mergeFullHeaders(self.tree + "/RedHat/base/hdlist2")
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 123, in 
    rpm.mergeHeaderListFromFD(self.hdlist, fd, 1000004)
rpm.error: match tag missing in new header

Expected Results:  installed RH7 on the rest of Corporate machines

Additional info:


where is the documetation to genhdlist or even anaconda?
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-07-13 14:33:08 EDT
what genhdlist did you use?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-07-13 15:19:36 EDT
The Genlist in the 7.0 pkge w/ 2.2.16 kernel
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist does not respond with a -V command
                                    cannot grep out a version ??
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-07-20 10:08:09 EDT
you must use the 7.1 gehndlist if you're targeting a 7.1 system.
