Description Dave Hodgins 2012-12-12 04:57:54 CET
After an install using either Mageia 3 beta 1 pre-release dvd iso images,
where the default of using nonfree media is left selected, after the
installation, /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg does not have nonfree selected.

Also, the wording on the select media screen is incorrect, since you
can't enable media there, just disable it.  Probably shouldn't be able
to unselect core, though I didn't check to see if it really does disable it.

urpmi.cfg after install using Mageia 3 beta 1

As shown by the attached urpmi.cfg, the nonfree from the dvd is enabled,
but the nonfree and nonfree_updates from the mirror are not enabled.

Comment 4 Anne Nicolas 2012-12-12 14:47:43 CET
Indeed to be more precise, nonfree media is activated in urpmi.cfg for local media but not for remote media added at the end of installation, which is an older bug (or feature)
Comment 5 claire robinson 2012-12-12 19:20:46 CET
I guess this should also apply to the live isos which all have nonfree and add medias on install.

I just used MCC on a 64-bit install, not urpmi.cfg, but when I went to add more media, core was checked but non-free wasn't, although I selected non-free during installation.

Created attachment 3625 [details]
Enable nonfree media if nonfree media has been used during install

This proposed patch uses the subroutine in attachment 3622 [details] to enable Nonfree/Tainted media before applying updates at the end of installation/upgrade but only if Nonfree or Tainted Media have been used during DVD or network install/upgrade.

Setting release blocker as this causes alot of problems for users when there are kernel updates.

Priority: Normal => release_blocker

Comment 17 Dave Hodgins 2013-05-14 05:48:07 CEST
Also note that if the dvd is used for an upgrade, Nonfree and Tainted should
be kept enabled, if they were enabled before the upgrade.

Currently, they are not being enabled.

Just fixed
