Description of problem:
After successful rh8 pro install, screen appears for installing additional
components, including Documentation CD. Clicking the associated button does not
install documentation. Clicking autorun icon on CD also fails to run. The
autorun script causes a dialog box to appear with the keyphrase "Installation
Tree Not Found" and the supplimentary text "The path None does not appear to be
a valid installation source."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be in X-windows desktop
2. Load cd into cd-rom drive
3. when filecontents appear in a window, select autorun and double-click
Actual Results: The autorun script causes a dialog box to appear with the
keyphrase "Installation Tree Not Found" and the supplimentary text "The path
None does not appear to be a valid installation source." This dialog is
identical to that produced when the installation program attempted to access the
Expected Results: Who knows? I think it should have let me install the docset.
Manual workaround was to select entire cd contents and copy them to
/usr/local/doc, then to click on top level webpages to navigate.
problem does not appear to be installer cd. copying any rpm package on any cd
to local disk directory and clicking on it causes observed behavior
rebooting doesn't cure the problem
I attempted the failed activities as root
Wow, this bug is really old. I guess It fell through the cracks
because the component was changed from installer to rpm but the owner
was not reassigned as well.
RHL 8.0 is no longer supported. Please file a new bug if you see this
behavior with Fedora Core 1.
