Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_Release_Criteria#remote-package-sources release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


Description

This is to verify that an installation can be performed from a mirror list repository configured in the Anaconda GUI.


How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available non-live means (anything except Live.iso)
  2. Change the installation source to point to a mirror list URL
  3. Proceed with the installation

Expected Results

  1. The installer accepts the mirror list repository definition
  2. The said mirror list is used for installation. This can be checked by examining the /tmp/packaging.log file. Example output:
    09:34:37,295 DEBUG packaging: adding yum repo anaconda with baseurl None and mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-31&arch=x86_64
    09:34:37,313 DEBUG packaging: disabling repo fedora
    09:34:37,313 DEBUG packaging: disabling repo updates-testing
    09:34:37,314 DEBUG packaging: disabling repo updates
    
  3. The installation completes and the new system initiates boot properly
