Description Erin Wilkins 2013-05-28 17:42:30 CEST
It is possible to run through the Mageia 3 DVD installer, and after the install finishes find you actually have a Cauldron install instead of Mageia 3.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Install from the Mageia 3 i568 DVD as standard with the following specific steps:
  - During the step when asked if you have additional media, setup a HTTP source (I used mirrors.kernel.org in the US)
  - At the end of the install, when asked if you want to apply updates, choose to do so

It looks like /product.id is bogus on ISOs, it says "cauldron"...
This it install from Cauldron, not Mageia 3 mirrors...

BTW product.id is bogus on cauldron mirrors too (it says "version=3" instead of "Cauldron")

Comment 4 Thierry Vignaud 2013-05-28 18:33:02 CEST
Just checked the dual ISO => x86_64/product.id is bogus
I think we need to redo the ISOs :-(
With fixed urpmi :-)

I forwarded it to the council, releasing only new classical could be enough?
Comment 6 Thierry Vignaud 2013-05-28 20:07:05 CEST
I didn't check live cds. Someone has to.
We can include the first batch of security updates in order to reduce the amount that will be downloaded after.
We should label it Mga3.1

Found the culprit. bcd configuration is not good as it's still using Devel branch in media.cfg on isos...

Confirmed by QA team tests.

Building new isos including urpmi update.
Comment 8 Thierry Vignaud 2013-05-28 22:46:45 CEST
For dual ISO and for those who add net media during installing, we should rebuild stage2 with the new urpmi
