Description Dennis Gregorovic 2010-08-04 18:36:29 UTC
In 32.5. Package Selection:

The following should be changed from

"""
You can use a kickstart file to install every available package by specifying @Everything or simply * in the %packages section. Red Hat does not support this type of installation.
Moreover, using a kickstart file in this way will introduce package and file conflicts onto the installed system. Packages known to cause such problems are assigned to the @Conflicts group. If you specify @Everything in a kickstart file, be sure to exclude @Conflicts or the installation will fail:

@Everything
-@Conflicts

Note that Red Hat does not support the use of @Everything in a kickstart file, even if you exclude @Conflicts.
