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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
redhat-config-packages just reads the information which gets encoded in the
.discinfo file which is a distribution question
Assigning to the package that creates the discinfo file. :)
Which just encodes whatever it is told to do - whoever names the distribution
should pass a user parsable name.
I believe this is fixed in current releases.
Two and a half years later, I should hope so ;-)
