Description jan 2003-05-02 20:58:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Using the package installer from the RH\System Settings\Add/Remove programs menu
results in an "unexpected error" when a different RH CD is in the tray than the
installer wants to install from.

for instance:
the installer looks for a package on CD 3 but CD 2 is in the tray opening the
package installer. 

Then the installer will not eject the CD-2. 

Ejecting the CD2 manualy (knop on cdromplayer) inserting CD3 and pressing <yes>
to continue the install from that CD will kill the installer.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert CD 2 of redhat in the drive.
2.close the filebrouwser that opens.
3.start the installer from RH\System Settings\Add/Remove programs
4.select an app to install wich is located soly on CD3
5.follow the <install> buttons.
6.when the request popup for CD 3 apears, note that it wont eject.
7.Manualy eject the CD
8.Insert the correct cd and close tray.
9.click yes on the request screen.

Actual Results:  instead of installing the required packages from a CD the app dies.

Expected Results:  The packages should have isntalled correctly

Additional info:

Rebooted system several times. under Gnome and KDE, same results.

If you run redhat-config-packages from a terminal, are there any more
descriptive errors in the terminal?
