Description of problem: No auto DVD repo created.

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

How reproducible:

Additional info:

If a DV.repo was auto installed by fedora-release.
Further use could be made of a DVD.

I have no study case as to multi-CD's Are they still used?


Would probably help with new users, on a low\no bandwidth.

I'm not reading that super long thread.  Show a patch with working PackageKit code and we'll talk.

Screen-Cap of DVD.repo getting disabled

Don't know the code but works with:

if correct dvd installed 

dvd.repo from 

Had no dvd installed for test, as no F13 general release handy.
But with a modified dvd.repo for F12-DVD, it will list the contents.

Personally, I think shipping a dvd repo on the DVD image (but disabled) is a very good idea. PackageKit will just disable the repo if it can't contact it, although I've not verified how many times PackageKit will tell you that it can't access the dvd repo when the disk is not installed. I fear it will inform the user every updates check, which is at least once a day. Multi-CD install media isn't really used anymore, so that's a use case I'm not willing to support.

If users genuinely want to use the DVD, they are the ones who have to enable the repo.

Note: yum (via MediaManager) makes this really hard to do anything sensible in PackageKit. I'm going to look at this today and see if we can bash the code into any reasonable state.
