I am conducting an HTTP install over the wire, for CentOS 5.5 x86_64
I get all the way through the install up to the point of setting a root password. Once that happens, I get the following message:
Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to missing repodata directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly generated. Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: anaconda-base-201004270002.x86_64. please very its path and try again
The first time this happened, I checked the "repodata" folder, and sure enough, the repomd.xml file was missing. However, I copied the entire installation directory tree back over to the HTTP install server, kicked off the install again from the test client, and received the error again.
i can browse the http://x.x.x.x/pub/
directory/tree fine, and see /CentOS directory, /repodata, etc.. all files are there.
