Description Toralf 2003-03-11 16:33:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Installer exits with key error for some non-standard packages on my customised 
install source. Behavuour in a similar to the one I get when a package is
mentioned in "comps", but missing from "hdlist", but in this case, however, I
_know_ that the packages are included. However, it looks all the packages in
question have rather complex names, versions or release numbers. One example is
alsa-driver from freshrpms.net; version-release is 0.9.0-fr0rc6.1

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy Red Hat CDs to location suitable for network install
2. Download alsa-driver-0.9.0-fr0rc6.1 from freshrpms, copy to install location
3. Add alsa-driver to RedHat/base/comps, update hdlist using genhdlist
4. Start network install with new location as source
Actual results:
Installer crash

Expected results:
Install starts

Either the package name isn't what you think it is or it's not in the hdlist. 
That is the *only* way you can get this.
