RE: corrupt package message during FC5 install from NFS.



Hi Paul,

   I moved onto using  FC5 Gold, earlier I was on FC5test3.

   I  am trying to run "anaconda --test -m nfs:/FC5 ".  After giving the
root password in the installation steps, installer pops same error box
again which I used to get with  FC5test3. It says --

"Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing
repodata directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been
correctly generated. failure: repodata/repomd.xml  from anaconda: [Errno
256] No more mirros to try."

The contents of FC5 are directly copied from CD{1-5}.  I built and
installed anaconda from SOURCE.rpm (anaconda-11.0.5).

What can be the problem?

Appreciate your help.
Thanks

ls /fedora
ls /fedora/repodata

I'd expect

/fedora/base
/fedora/RPMS
/fedora/repodata

Then repomd.xml primary.xml.gz and some other files in repodata:

comps.xml
filelists.xml.gz
other.xml.gz
primary.xml.gz
repomd.xml

Paul
