Description Jason Woodward 2003-10-08 14:54:21 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030930
Debian/1.4-5

Description of problem:
The problem arises when we switched to Beta2 as our base install for ourcustom
cd.  By customizing the cd, we mean replacing some rpms, addingsome of our own
packages, and running genhdlist so our package versionsare made known to the
install.  We aren't using 'buildinstall'.  Since we have switched to using the
Beta2 CD1 as a base, we now get an errordialog (text install) informing us:

"You are trying to install on a machine that isn't supported by thisrelease of
RedHat Advanced Server AS"

From what I can tell I am using the most up to date packages for what weare
including on the cd.

# snip from: ./RedHat/base/stage2.img:usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py
    # this is a crappy hack, but I don't want bug reports from these people
    if (arch == "i386") and (not id.grpset.hdrlist.has_key("kernel")):
        intf.messageWindow(_("Error"),
                           _("You are trying to install on a machine "
                             "which isn't supported by this release of "
                             "%s.") %(productName,),
                           type="custom", custom_icon="error",
                           custom_buttons=[_("_Exit")])
        sys.exit(0)
# end snip

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-product-2.9.5-2AS.noarch.rpm

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put custom packages in ./RedHat/RPMS/
2. run genhdlist: $(GENHDLIST) --withnumbers --hdlist $(HDLIST)
$(PATH)$(INSTALLMEDIADIR)
3. Boot with cd.  Error occurs after partitioning, before packages are
installed, during pre-install phase.
    

Actual Results:  Dialog (text mode):

"You are trying to install on a machine that isn't supported by thisrelease of
RedHat Advanced Server AS"

Expected Results:  installed rpms happily

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-08 15:16:29 EDT
Sorry, you must have a package named kernel included.
Comment 3 Jason Woodward 2003-10-08 16:15:57 EDT
Thanks.  A more descriptive warning might be in order.  Rather than have a
kernel-BOOT, kernel-smp etc, just /^kernel\W/ is required.  Also, it might be
more obvious that this is a necessity if it was included on disk1.
