Description of problem:
This is a bug for null (9.0 beta) and not for Redhat 7.3. After installing using
a network based install, I cannot start the package manager. It dies giving the
[root@120pc222 root]# redhat-config-packages
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 134, in ?
im = method.CdromInstallMethod()
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/method.py", line 323, in __init__
discid.read(self.baseDir + "/.discinfo")
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/discid.py", line 30, in read
file = open (filename, 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/comps/i386/.discinfo'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install null using network based install
2.Start the package manager
The comps package (from RedHat/base/comps.rpm) wasn't being installed on
ftp/http installs. If you install it, then redhat-config-packages should start
fine. Current versions give a better error message in this case as well.
