Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Availability of the "core" package group in selected repositories, required for successfully installation, was not checked before proceeding to the package installation phase. Consequence: When no selected repository had the "core" package group, installation ended with an exception when proceeding to package installation. Fix: Check if selected repositories have the "core" package group and if they don't, show a warning dialog instead of proceeding to the next step. Result: If the selected repositories don't contain the "core" group, a warning dialog is shown and the installation is blocked until a repository containing the "core" group is added.

Comment 8 Martin Kolman 2013-07-17 06:27:14 EDT
Fixed both in GUI and TUI.

In GUI it now shows a dialog that notifies that none of the selected repositories have the core package group and won't allow to continue the installation until some repos containing the core package group are added.

And in TUI, if none of the repositories specified in kickstart (as there is no standalone repository dialog in TUI) contains the core group, it shows a warning dialog and exits.
Comment 10 Jan Stodola 2013-09-26 07:32:14 EDT
Retested with anaconda-13.21.206-1.el6 from compose RHEL6.5-20130924.2. Anaconda doesn't allow the user to continue until base repository is selected.

Thanks, moving to VERIFIED.
