Description Justin Sherrill 2013-11-07 15:56:33 EST
Description of problem:

Using katello 1.4 kickstarting a fedora 19 machine results in package groups being skipped completely from the kickstart file %packages section.  

'it's complaining about it being in the "old style" yum groups instead of "new style" yum groups'

More investigation needs to be done to determine where the problem lies
Comment 1 Justin Sherrill 2013-11-07 16:01:58 EST
Currently a work around is in the %post section add:

# Convert groups from old style to new style!
yum groups mark convert
# Make sure that the group install worked correctly... for the desktop
yum -t -y -e 0 groupinstall core basic-desktop gnome-desktop cinnamon-desktop

listing all the groups that you wanted to install in %packages

Moving to Sat6 to be tracked there. Upstream bugs are moving to redmine.

This relates to an old Fedora which is no longer supported. If you are seeing this on a newer Fedora, please feel free to re-open.
