Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 06:37:09 UTC
Did you do an install via ftp/http?

Comment 2 Carlos Morgado 2002-08-21 08:46:01 UTC
yes, booted bootnet from floppy and did a ftp install.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 14:04:25 UTC
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 14:17:21 UTC
the fix works for me.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-24 21:00:17 UTC
And we now pop up an error dialog in this case instead of tracebacking as well
