Description James Laska 2010-02-17 18:31:57 UTC
Created attachment 394789 [details]

Description of problem:

If I PXE boot the installer, and use a remote install.img (where repo= and stage2=http://someserver/path/to/install/source), I am unable to add a CD/DVD package repository in the reposetup step.  While I can mount the inserted DVD from tty2, the UI indicates that no installation media was found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * anaconda-13.26 (plus http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/updates-f13-alpha-tc2.img)

How reproducible:

 * 3 of 3 attempts

Steps to Reproduce:

 * Follow instructions at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Additional_CDDVD_Repository
Actual results:

See attached screenshot.

Expected results:

The DVD should be accepted as a valid package repo

Additional info:
 * Will attach /tmp from anaconda (including all log files)
 * While the Fedora alpha release criteria (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Alpha_Release_Criteria) indicate that loading package from a DVD package repository is required, I believe this is a degenerate case in that I'm not booting from the DVD, but instead PXEbooting and later attempting to add a local DVD package repository.

I sent a patch for review: https://www.redhat.com/archives/anaconda-devel-list/2010-March/msg00297.html

Comment 3 James Laska 2010-03-23 23:41:38 UTC
No explicit release criteria for this use case, so I don't think we should block release on this.  But it's a nice to have fix with what seems to be a low-impact patch.  Adding to F13Target.

Comment 4 Radek Vykydal 2010-03-24 10:22:00 UTC
This should be fixed in master, anaconda 14.2.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 10:51:29 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
