Description Andrew McNabb 2013-01-15 17:06:39 EST
Description of problem:
The installer crashed soon after starting up. It was running from a kickstart script.
The following was filed automatically by anaconda:

Comment 10 Andrew McNabb 2013-01-15 17:12:57 EST
The crash occurred while the progress bar read "Starting package installation process". After rebooting and trying again, the same error occurred at the same point.
Comment 11 Chris Lumens 2013-01-15 17:15:46 EST
Note the line in the middle of the traceback:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 3693, in selectGroup
    self.logger.critical(_('Group %s does have %u conditional packages, which may get installed.'), count_cond_test)
Comment 12 Andrew McNabb 2013-01-15 18:01:36 EST
I adjusted my package groups in response to Comment 11, and it looks like commenting out deprecated package groups may have helped to work around the issue. I haven't specifically tried adding them in one by one, but it might help anyone who's trying to reproduce the issue to add any of: base, graphical-internet, graphics, java, java-development, office, sound-and-video, system-tools, or text-internet, all of which are now commented out.
