Description Bill Peck 2012-12-07 10:16:46 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to do a network install from kickstart.  Using additional repos.  Before this I was informed that package X is not available (even though it was in the repos I added from kickstart), do I want to continue?  I said yes.  I did this for several more packages before getting this error report.

This looks like the error line in question:

self.logger.critical(_('Group %s does have %u conditional packages, which may get installed.'), count_cond_test)
Comment 17 Bill Peck 2012-12-07 10:30:18 EST
Looking at the anaconda.log did show me a problem with the custom repos I added.

10:12:21,785 WARN yum.YumBase: Bad id for repo: Adobe Flash, byte =   5
10:12:21,785 WARN yum.YumBase: Bad id for repo: RPM Fusion for Fedora 18 - Free, byte =   3
10:12:21,786 WARN yum.YumBase: Bad id for repo: RPM Fusion for Fedora 18 - Nonfree, byte =   3

Byte 3 and 5 show a space.  I went into the ks.cfg and replaced all " " with "_" and I no longer get the missing package errors.  But I still get the same traceback.

Should I file a bug about the space issue?  That used to work with F17, I'm using the same kickstarts.
Comment 18 Bill Peck 2012-12-08 12:23:57 EST
Same error happens with Test Compose 1 as well.
Comment 19 Zdeněk Pavlas 2012-12-10 03:01:00 EST

Fixed upstream, will build -48.fc18 if necessary.

Comment 25 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2013-01-28 18:02:36 EST
I would like to add this issue as a commonbug

Here is a IRC report on #fedora-devel

<bakers> Did the options for including/excluding packages in kickstart change? I can't add a package in kickstart. I get errors that the package doesn't exist when I KNOW it does
<bakers> Here is my file: [...]
<bakers> I'm just trying to install postfix at the time of install
<kwizart> bakers, try not to have space in "repo' names
<bakers> kwizart: repo --name="Fedora 18 - x86_64" you mean that?
<kwizart> there is a yum issue related to that
<bakers> kwizart: SOB! I think that was it!
<bakers> I've been working on this for a week!

The workaround is to remove space from the name of the repo.

There is already a kickstart bug listed as commonbug and it should be rather common for kickstart users to list several additional repositories including fedora ones for their installs. Also the experienced error doesn't explicitly point to the solution as if the problem when the kickstart was parsed.
