Description Petr Schindler 2012-08-17 09:12:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I can't set DVD as installation source. When I start anaconda the closest mirror is set as default. When I go to the installation source spoke, there is checked auto-detected installation media, where is only installation dvd (but it's not highlighted). When I go back to main hub, it still shows that closest mirror is chosen. When I go back to installation source spoke and choose (highlight) dvd and then click on back, it shows 'Fail to set up install source'.

I see two problems in this. First, anaconda is unable to use DVD repo as a source. Second, closest mirror is set as default instead of DVD (it makes sence for now, when DVD source can't be use)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.6
Alpha TC3 DVD.iso

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot anaconda from DVD.iso, choose language and accept your fate
2. click on 'Installation source'
3. Choose dvd as a source
Actual results:
anaconda fails to set up dvd as a installation source

Expected results:
Anaconda should be able to use DVD repo

Additional info:
I propose this as a blocker bug due to criterion:
"When booting from a DVD ISO image, the installer must be able to use the DVD local package source options "

Can you attach the logs from your install?  There might be something in there about the DVD media.  I'm not sure we've tested with full media though.

Don't worry about it, I can reproduce.  Sent off a patch I don't really like, but will hopefully spur people into coming up with a better fix.

Discussed at 2012-08-20 QA meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting/2012-08-20/fedora-qa.2012-08-20-15.00.html . Accepted as a blocker per criterion "When booting from a DVD ISO image, the installer must be able to use the DVD local package source options".
