Description Michael Wiktowy 2007-04-10 05:09:10 UTC
Description of problem:
The LiveCD installer can be invoked multiple times resulting in multiple
installations occurring simultaneously.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start livecd install by clicking the desktop icon
2. repeat this as many times as you like
Actual results:
Multiple instances of anaconda start

Expected results:
The original instance should be brought into focus and a new one prevented from
being started

Additional info:
While it is not a sane thing to do, if it is mistakenly done I don't think very
good things would happen. Therefore it should be prevented.

I think this should be resolved post-test3, but I'll double check as soon as the
live image I've got going finishes...

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-10 14:49:11 UTC
Okay, the use of hal-lock makes this not a problem
