Summary0004372: New x86_64 repodata breaks PXE installation
DescriptionWe use our public mirror for PXE-based installations of CentOS. The mirror sync today included updated files in 5.5/os/x86_64/repodata/

Since this update our x86_64 installations cannot complete. The following error appears when loading repo information before the installer terminates fatally:

"Unable to read group information from repositories. This is a problem with the generation of your install tree."

No problem has been seen with i386 installations.
TagsNo tags attached.

To follow up, if I take the repodata directory from the 5.5 x86_64 DVD ISO and put it at 5.5/os/x86_64/repodata/, the installer does not fail.

Things like yum 'group' commands are not working either (reported by a Forum user).

Yes, this has to do with today's metadata update. Please see bug #4353.
