Description weejock-rhbug 2000-04-13 18:48:41 EDT

I'm trying to update our kickstart setup from the 6.0
installer to the new 6.2 stuff.  But the latter seems
rather fragile.

It will reproducibly segfault after "Performing post-
install configuration" if fed a ks.cfg with unresolved
package dependencies.

Nothing unusually vital seems to break - after rebooting
everything appears to work OK, but it demands someone
present to do a three-finger salute before the box comes
up, which is a pain.

If it matters, I'm currently testing on a laptop with
the updated pcmcia image, but not the installer update
disk.  (There didn't seem to be any relevant fixes, so
I didn't bother looking out another floppy.)

Please submit a copy of the ks.cfg file which you are using and I will be glad
to try and replicate this situation in the lab.

Comment 3 weejock-rhbug 2000-04-14 08:06:59 EDT
The ks.cfg I am using is now attached.  If you uncomment the gnome-libs and
gnome-libs-devel lines, it works fine.

For now, I am running "rpm -Va" once the install is complete to find the broken
Comment 4 weejock-rhbug 2000-04-14 08:22:59 EDT
Aargh, it's not happening now.  I'll break some other dependencies and
try again later.

Please reopen this bug if you are able to replicate.
