Description Jay Berkenbilt 2003-09-27 11:41:04 EDT
Description of problem:

I am trying to install severn 2 with kickstart.  I have "vnc" in my package
list.  This made kickstart do a vnc-based install.

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

Fedora Core test1 (0.94)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  boot with linux ks=floppy using the attached kickstart file or probably any
that lists "vnc" in the package list
Actual results:

A vnc install is initiated

Expected results:

A normal interactive install should have been initiated (since I have
"interactive" in my ks.cfg).  Anaconda should not have interpreted the name of a
package as a directive.
