Software Selection page
Using the http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/stage/f18-20120823.1/ppc64/iso/Fedora-18-ppc64-DVD.iso iso, over a VNC connection, when I navigate to the "Software Selection" page, it is empty of content (see attached screen shot).
When I navigate to the "Installation Source" page, click "On the network", click "http://", and enter the following:
and navigate back to the "Software Selection" page, I then see the different options under "Choose your environment" and "Choose your add-ons".
The comps.xml file on the DVD does not have any environment sections listed, nor does it have any whiteout or blacklist sections. The latter two would not affect this screen but is different from the x86_64 comps.xml. The lack of environment, however, is what's causing this problem. Are you using the latest comps stuff from git that has the environments listed? I'm not really sure how you go about making DVD metadata, but that's the problem.
Yes, we use the latest comps - it gets pulled right from primary
This was actually a yum bug, the merged comps being generated by pungi wasn't picking up the environment sections.
