Description of problem:
When installing RH 7.3, selecting: Gnome, KDE, Development and Games: During CD
2 ionstall, the system claims to NOT be able to find: xmms-devel, zlib-devel,
and wine. Clicking return to retry eventually causes the warning popup messages
to go away, but the packages are apparently not installed. At the end of the
installation, a error message is displayed: An unhandled exception has occurred.
The net result is that the system is un-bootable. A kernel is apparently not
installed, or at least not detected by GRUB. This is a very serious problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.3. Select Gnome, KDE, Games & Development
2. Observe what happens
Actual Results: System would not boot.
Expected Results: Installation should have finished normally. I have a CD with
the error messages, that the failed install created. I do not have a working
Linux system right now, so I cannot send you what it says.
Please give this TOP priority ASAP. This is a new release and potentially all
installers will be affected.
Have you tested your CDs by booting with the 'linux mediacheck' commandline?
