Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 02:37:09 EDT
Did you do an install via ftp/http?
Comment 2 Carlos Morgado 2002-08-21 04:46:01 EDT
yes, booted bootnet from floppy and did a ftp install.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 10:04:25 EDT
Grab RedHat/base/comps.rpm and install it and things will be happier; there was
a bug in the code pulling the package for ftp/http installs that didn't get
fixed for (null).  Some better error handling is needed for this case, though.
Comment 4 Carlos Morgado 2002-08-21 10:17:21 EDT
the fix works for me.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-24 17:00:17 EDT
And we now pop up an error dialog in this case instead of tracebacking as well
