Using custom repo during system install
Last modified: 2014-08-12 00:32:15 EDT
Description of problem:
use custom repo during system install. the custom repos added in xml files like:
<repo name="myrepo_2" url="http://lacrosse.corp.redhat.com/~hjia/"/>
The Requires directive will add
in job xml, some of the packages are not in distro repo, rather in specified repo, so this bug want to add repo support during install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Have you tried this? Because if you had I think you would have seen it works already.
Oops! Sorry, I should have tried it myself. I was thinking of the optional repos we add automatically to the distro.
I'll see if I can get the repos from the job added during install time.
The only downside to this is if you give a bad repo it will prevent the install from happening at all.
Since the <package name="xxx"/> in job xml is generated automatically according to test rpm dependencies, so it make sense to enable this feature.
Thus, we dont need to add <test role='STANDALONE' name='/distribution/pkginstall'>......</test> for each packages the test need.

Had to revert this change since it causes some problems with anaconda.
