Description Larry O'Leary 2013-01-27 01:20:04 EST
Description of problem:
I was attempting to do a Kickstart install. I had received many error messages regarding missing packages. From the looks of it, the repo lines in the Kickstart file were not getting used. In any event, I continued with the installation. I then received an error stating that @base didn't exist and shortly after that, this error occurred.
The following was filed automatically by anaconda:
anaconda 18.37.11 exception report

Comment 10 Larry O'Leary 2013-01-27 02:30:29 EST
Even after removing the offending package names and groups and disabling all the repo definitions in my Kickstart file, the same error occurs.

Not sure what it triggering it at this point but it does seem like Kickstart might be partially broken in Fedora 18.
