Description of problem:
RedHat installer continuously searches for the missing files.
Tried installing RedHat 7.3 through network via ftp. I coppied RedHat CD1 to
the server, here i did not copy CD2 or CD3 into the ftp server. Started the
installation from the client.Half way through the installation program stopped.
When checked the other tty's got to know that it was continuously searching for
that rpm which was not present in the ftp server.Latter copied the file and the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Created a client network boot disk(dd if=/mnt/cdrom/images/dootnet.img
2. Boot the system from the floppy disk
3. IP Address assigned from a DHCP server
4. gave ipaddress and path of the ftp server
5. Started the installation process in text mode.
Actual Results: The installer stops installing ( no warning or error displayed)
In terminal5 an error is displayed(I could not capture the exact error message.)
Expected Results: 1) An error or a warning message should be displayed to the
user informing about the missing package.
2) It might happen that the user might have dumped the contents of the second
CD in a different location. If it is so then the installation process should
atleast ask for the new location if the rpms are not found. If in case the
RPM's are not found in the newlocation then an error message or a warning
should be displayed.
I tried doing network installation through HTTP then when the RPM could not be
found i did get an error message (The file tmpopenjade....rpm cannot be opened).
