Description of problem:
using the GUI redhat-config-kickstart, it is possible to select the
package groups 'Server Configuration Tools' and 'Network Servers'
which do not exist.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a ks.cfg using redhat-config-kickstart which contain 'Server
2. install using this ks.cfg
3. watch it fail.
Which RHEL 3 variant are you using (AS, ES, WS)?
"Server Configuration Tools" and "Network Servers" are valid package
groups for AS and ES although they don't exist for WS. We left those
groups in redhat-config-kickstart in order to make it possible to
create a kickstart file for all RHEL variants.
In other words, it should be possible to use redhat-config-kickstart
on a WS machine to make a kickstart file for an AS installation.
However, I see your point in that there is no way for the user to tell
that some groups may not exist for WS systems.
This will be fixed in system-config-kickstart-2.5.8-1 to make it more
clear which package groups are avilable on the different variants.
