Description Jesse Pollard 2010-07-13 15:40:21 UTC
Description of problem:

Missing 421 rpms from the CD disks as compared to the DVD kit

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

How reproducible:
copied all rpms from each CD iso (1 through 5) into a single directory, then
compared to the corresponding list from the DVD iso.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy rpms from each CD iso Package directory into a target
2.cd into target
3.Use "ls -C1 >/tmp/cd.list" to create a list of rpms
4.cd into DVD iso (mounted loopback) Packages directory
5.Use "ls -C1 >/tmp/dvd.list" to create a list
6.Use "comm -1 -3 cd.list dvd.list >missing_cd.rpms

You could also do a "comm -2 -3" cd.list dvd.list >missing_dvd.rpms"
to create a list of packages that may be missing from the DVD.
Actual results:

The list "missing_cd.rpms" contains 421 entries.

Expected results:

A zero length file

Additional info:Among the missing rpms are various entries for the "Administration Tools", "Mail Server", "Server Configuration Tools"
(there are others... these were just the ones I tried).

This makes it VERY difficult to install a disconnected system, or a system
that does not have network connections to the internet (isolated networks).

I don't really get why this bug has been affected to abby ????

Comment 2 Jesse Pollard 2010-08-25 23:10:54 UTC

Most installations would have (or have) a network connection available. This
really only affects isolated systems or systems on an isolated network.

I'm sorry but ... I understand the problem, but don't get the relation with the abby software. What am I supposed to do ?

this is not a bug in relation with abby.
You should report this problem to the -devel mailing list.
