Description Alexander Todorov 2009-05-20 09:02:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Traceback when running the autorun script on the extras CD (LACD).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4/U8, default package set
2. After first boot, mount the LACD disk (or let automount)
3. run /media/cdrom/automount
Actual results:
The GUI start and as soon as you hit the Next button it crashes:

hal devs is {}
hal devs is {}
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/InstallDruid.py", line 524, in ?
    druid.run ()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/InstallDruid.py", line 459, in run
    self.do_system_info_state ()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/InstallDruid.py", line 329, in do_system_info_state
    hdlist = self.method.readHeaders()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/method.py", line 550, in readHeaders
    return GroupSet.HeaderListFromFile(self.baseDir + "/hdlist", self, update_method)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/GroupSet.py", line 527, in __init__
    hdlist = rpm.readHeaderListFromFile(path)
rpm.error: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Expected results:
One is able to install packages from the extra disk using GUI.

This is a malformed LACD.  There's no RedHat/base/hdlist on the disc
Comment 9 Ben Levenson 2009-05-22 08:41:00 EDT
should this be moved to MODIFIED ?
