Description bill parducci 2002-10-09 23:55:37 UTC

Description of problem:
anaconda terminates if it receives a 'connection refused' from ftp site on net
install.  since installs over ftp are typically done in our shop by mounting a
cd for direct access, inetd/ftpd must be stopped to swap CDs. as late as version
7.3 anaconda would retry the request until the ftp server was restarted on the
remote end.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.english install of 8.0
2. ftp install
3. start/stop remote ftp daemon  when files on first cd have been installed.	

Actual Results:  anaconda crashed, checking alternative output (alt-F3) showed
that after a series of 'file not found' (normal) entries, it reported a
'connection refused' and aborted.

Expected Results:  should have tried to reconnect (as was the case in versions
thru 7.x)

Additional info:

don't think this is system specific or specfic to upgrade vs. install.

the biggest problem is that i now have a half upgraded server that i have to try
to repair.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-14 15:01:54 UTC
This is due to changes in how urllib in python 2.2 handles errors as opposed to
urllib in python 1.5.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-08 22:01:05 UTC
This is handled sanely in our current codebase (we retry five times, if it
fails, pop up a dialog saying there might be a problem, but let you retry)
