Description of problem:
I was installing from some CDs hard to be correctly read; a package
on the CD 2 was not readable, but no "skip" option was available
on the error dialog box, the only option was to retry...
... indefinitely.
The only viable option has been to repeat the installation
with another set of CDs.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Expected Results:  The installation program should allow to complete the
skipping a package which cannot be read on an installation CD;
it could be added "by hand" at the end of the installation, after
the installation, it should not be mandatory to completely repeat
the installation.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-04 17:45:45 UTC
It is not possible to skip a package on a CD install - rpm usually has fd's open
on the CD so we cannot umount it and eject it, and continuing in the middle of a
transaction set is usually going to end up with a unusable system anyways.  You
are best redoing the installation with CDs which have been checked via the
mediacheck option.
