Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 584595
images/README is full of crazy talk
Last modified: 2014-06-10 15:44:30 EDT
Description of problem:
The file images/README describes what the boot.iso file is, that file doesn't exist. It says nothing about all the files that do exist.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I didn't check others but it probably applies to all of them.
Steps to Reproduce:
No useful information about anything in the images directory.
Useful information about the things in the images directory.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
RHEL6.0-20100428.3-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso with anaconda-13.21.32-1.el6 doesn't contain the images/README file on the DVD.
In fact there are no files named README at all on the DVD.
Is this the intended fix?
That is the intended fix from the anaconda perspective. They're not in the documentation business, so it doesn't make sense for them to maintain the README file.
If we still want a README on the DVD, I can follow up with the docs team to have them put together the text and then I would tweak the compose process to pull that into the DVD.
Thanks Dennis. Moving to VERIFIED.
Well, this certainly isn't the resolution I had in mind. The README file was useful in the past and people do ask questions about the files in that directory in community support channels on IRC. I hope you will consider including one explaining the purpose of the files in the images directory on the media.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta 2 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
