Description Amadeus 2005-06-19 00:22:59 UTC
Description of problem:
When FTP is used for the source of packages, and there arises an error, the
error message refures to corrupted RPM packages are corrupted CD's.

The error that was written in the second (?) textmode screen was:
*IOError 4 occurred getting IOError [Errno ftp error] (111, 'connection refused')

If I kept pressing "retry" the packages got installed.

Would logs from the ftp server be interesting?

Yes, a sample of the transfer logs from your ftp server would be helpful in
seeing what's going on.

Examples of files that anaconda clamed were corrent or the CD media was


Keep pressing Retry "fixed" the problem.

The files have correct sha1sum.

Installing FC4 using http with the same files worked.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 4 Amadeus 2007-01-25 11:33:33 UTC
I don't have FC4 anymore. What resolution should I set the bug to when I close it?
