Comment 1 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-06-06 12:46:34 UTC
IMO this is two different issues--one which is a missing option (DVD install) and one which is apparently a bug (no entry of address supported for the listed install methods).

The missing option I'm not going to bother addressing in this bug as I'm already aware of that.

As for being unable to specify an address for http/ftp, I'm going to need a little more info. Could you please attach log files found in /tmp/ as text/plain attachments? And/or a screenshot....e.g. are you unable to proceed to a certain step in the source repo spoke or does typing not register anything to the console when it asks you to specify? This is how it should proceed: http://sbueno.fedorapeople.org/text-inst.jpg

Comment 2 Robert Lightfoot 2013-06-07 01:56:33 UTC
OK this bug can be reduced to the DVD is not allowed as install source.  With the jpg Samantha posted it makes more sense.

Comment 3 Robert Lightfoot 2013-06-07 11:54:50 UTC
When I saw the continue option, but not http address i opted for quit and never explored deeper until I saw the jpeg.

Discussed at 2013-06-10 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-06-10/f19final-blocker-review-4.2013-06-10-16.01.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_19_Alpha_Release_Criteria#DVD_package_source : "When using the DVD image, the installer must be able to use the DVD as a package source.", as applied to the text installer interface.

It works all right now. DVD textinstall shows (and uses) DVD as a repository.
