Description Martin Korbel 2013-08-30 05:44:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda does not install "environment groups", but "yum grouplist" display only them + some unimportant groups.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get list of groups on the Fedora 19
> yum grouplist -v 
Available environment groups:
   GNOME Desktop (gnome-desktop-environment)
   KDE Plasma Workspaces (kde-desktop-environment)
   Xfce Desktop (xfce-desktop-environment)
   LXDE Desktop (lxde-desktop-environment)
   Cinnamon Desktop (cinnamon-desktop-environment)
   MATE Desktop (mate-desktop-environment)
Available Groups:
   3D Printing (3d-printing)
   Administration Tools (admin-tools)
   Authoring and Publishing (authoring-and-publishing)

2. Add some environment group into kickstart

Actual results:
error message in installation
group "mate-desktop-environment" does not exist

Expected results:
no errors and anaconda install all "mandatory groups" from "environment group".

Additional info:

It's worth noting that yum uses the syntax "@^mate-desktop-environment" for environment groups. Supporting this will also require a change in pykickstart.

can the bug owner update this to include Fedora 20, I've just hit this with the group gnome-desktop-environment

I have tried it on Fedora 20 and the problem is still here.
