Description Ellen Shull 2004-10-27 06:45:18 UTC
Description of problem: 
Did a test install of FC3-rc1 in text mode, and rc2 in graphical 
mode.  Used the rescue cd and did an http install both times.  When 
install was complete, in both cases it helpfully advised me to remove 
all installation media before rebooting, but the CD-ROM drive was 
locked and wouldn't eject. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
anaconda- (that's what it is installed in rc2, so I'm 
assuming that's what the installer was built with) 
How reproducible: 
Both times I tried it. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
0.  Boot rescue disc, do 'linux' or 'linux text' to start install 
1.  Install from http 
2.  Try to eject disc when advised to do so 
3.  ??? 
4.  Don't profit. 
Actual results: 
ignores presses of eject button on drive 
Expected results: 
Drive ejects disc 
Additional info: 
I'm guessing it just needs to unmount whatever it's got mounted on 
the disc first... 
Not sure if the http install is a necessary part.  Maybe it messes up 
on all non-disc-based installs this way, since it hasn't had to 
unmount stuff to allow for swapping of discs?

This is because we're using the second stage off of the CD.  Need to
reword that a bit, but can't do that while string frozen.  Targetting FC4.

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2007-03-14 19:35:14 UTC
Fixed string to not tell you to eject the CD, since there's no way we can really
tell that you booted off the rescue disc.  We can't fix this to unmount the CD
since the second stage is loopback mounted off the CD.
