Description Travis Saling 2002-09-10 14:14:17 EDT
Description of Problem:

When I try to run redhat-config-packages (from the menu
Application/System Settings/Packages) it reaches the step
"Checking system package status", then immediately throws
the error "Installation Tree Not Found - The path /dev/cdrom
does not look like a valid installation source". When I
click the "OK" button, it then exits

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

Most recent package 0.92.1-1

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-packages either from the menu or from the command line.
2. That's it.

Actual Results:

I get the error as reported above.

Expected Results:

I expect the program to run. :-)

Additional Information:

I am running the most recent packages for the null beta - including the 200+
updates (!) that were released last night via up2date.

Do you have the comps package installed (rpm -q comps)?
Comment 2 Travis Saling 2002-09-20 17:13:02 EDT
The comps package was not installed. I went and grabbed it (from
i386/RedHat/base/), and now redhat-config-packages does run correctly.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-09-20 19:03:14 EDT
How did you do your installation originally?  There were a few paths where it
didn't get installed that we've fixed internally
Comment 4 Travis Saling 2002-09-20 19:27:12 EDT
I did a network (FTP) install, using a floppy I'd made from the 'null' images
directory. Actually I've encountered this error on two separate computers (both
were FTP installs). On my desktop machine I'd used the image bootnet.img; for
the second I used pcmcia.img since it is a laptop. Probably that doesn't matter...

I didn't "select individual packages" on either install, as far as I remember,
but I did add and remove a few categories of packages (i.e. "Windows
compatibility", "WWW server", stuff at that level).
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2002-09-23 11:07:50 EDT
Yeah, there was a problem with ftp/http installs not installing the comps
package in (null) that is fixed in internal trees
