Description Stefan Geuns 2006-03-04 12:03:33 UTC
Description of problem:  
I made my own copy of the fedora core 5 test 3 repository, so I can do a local  
http install. But because fedora is ~3GB I didn't download everything. I  
forgot to download some needed files so anaconda couldn't find them. Now I got  
to see the dialog for file not found and my only option was to reboot. Kind of  
annoying, because I didn't have any boot media anymore (booted with grub).  
I want a Retry button in the dialog, so I can download files to my local copy  
and then retry to find it in anaconda. Or an option to select another mirror.  
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  
How reproducible:  
Steps to Reproduce:  
1. Download a fedora core repo, but exclude some needed rpms 
2. install fedora  
Actual results:  
forced to reboot  
Expected results:  
retry option or other mirror selection dialog

At this point, we probably can't adjust this for FC5, but putting on a list to
ensure that we do for FC6

Comment 2 Stefan Geuns 2006-03-05 16:01:22 UTC
I'm happy too if you can redo the entire checks (and formatting?).  

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2006-05-25 16:48:02 UTC
This should be much better in Rawhide.  Please test against FC6test1 when it is
release and let us know if it's still mishebaving.

Comment 4 Stefan Geuns 2006-07-13 13:01:34 UTC
I finally got the chance to test it and it looks really good except for 1 
small bug. (FC6 test 1)
I have to click Retry twice before anaconda finds the package.

Many thanks for the fix, it saved me much time!
