Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 619140
RFE: Anaconds - Add provision to include/enable additional repositories during installation/upgrade
Last modified: 2010-07-29 12:32:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Used the F13 i386 DVD to upgrade a F12 installation. Upon rebooting the system and running "yum upgrade" 1100+ packages (1.5GB) were in need of updating or installation. Many of these newer packages just replaced the packages that were installed from the DVD.
Please add the capability of enabling or adding additional repositories during install. As a minimum allow the Updates repository to be included.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is very similar to the problem discussed in 163299.

How is this a duplicate of bug 163299? That poster requested the ability to add additional packages. I'm requesting that this distro catch up to what the openSUSE developers have been doing for a long time. As a minimum enable the Updates repository.
You can use preupgrade to do this instead of using an install DVD.

Tried preupgrade several times. Last instance, it could not find the hard drive after copious packages were downloaded and the system was rebooted.
