Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49770
kickstart: if rpm segfaults, the whole installer sig11's
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:04 EDT
See #49688 for a problem where rpm segfaults.
If such rpm is included in the distribution when installing, using standard install
anaconda tries to install the rpm, fails, but the keeps on going without complaints.
However, when run in the kickstart mode, the whole installer dies with sig11 if anaconda tries
to install the bad rpm.
There might be some reasons for different behaviour (kickstart is often expected to be "honed to
the perfection beforehand" :-), but this does look more like a misfeature to me...
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Well if there is a bad RPM we should always stop the install.
Jeremy is doing some work to handle the bad package case.
Things should be better with our current codebase
