Description Tom Wood 2002-10-02 10:47:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
Having redhat-config-packages ask for "Psyche 8.0" disk x isn't desirable for
new users.  I highly doubt that many people will be thrown
off the trail by this, but in a distro that's going for mass appeal, it
somehow seems inappropriate.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch redhat-config-packages.
2.Add a package.
3.Watch it ask for "Psyche 8.0" disk x

Actual Results:  Asked for "Psyche 8.0" disk x

Expected Results:  Should have asked for "Red Hat Linux 8.0 i386" disk x.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-02 11:02:06 EDT
redhat-config-packages just reads the information which gets encoded in the
.discinfo file which is a distribution question
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-02 12:08:49 EDT
Assigning to the package that creates the discinfo file. :)
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 15:28:46 EDT
Which just encodes whatever it is told to do - whoever names the distribution
should pass a user parsable name.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-01 15:48:44 EST
I believe this is fixed in current releases.

Two and a half years later, I should hope so ;-)
