Comment 1 Barnaby Court 2014-08-10 18:56:27 UTC
The issue is that the default property is not being set properly on the component groups.  If no group is set as default then the graphical installer lets you progress without selecting any group.  In this case packages are missing.  However, If a group is selected, minimal install, basic server, etc., then the install completes and boots successfully.

Comment 2 Barnaby Court 2014-08-10 18:58:02 UTC
Editing pulp_rpm/plugins/pulp_rpm/plugins/distributors/yum/metadata/package.py:78

and adding the lines:
        ElementTree.SubElement(group_element, 'default').text = \
will fix the problem

Comment 4 Randy Barlow 2014-08-13 19:59:10 UTC
This was fixed in the 2.4.1-0.1.alpha build.

Comment 5 Preethi Thomas 2014-08-19 16:21:33 UTC
verified with 2.4.1
kickstarted rhel6 with the synced repo from cdn

Comment 6 Randy Barlow 2014-08-20 03:31:06 UTC
We are rebasing pulp-2.4.1, and so all of these bugs can no longer be considered VERIFIED. We will need to recheck them against the rebased build to make sure the cherry picking strategy did not introduce any regressions.

Comment 7 Chris Duryee 2014-09-30 13:52:29 UTC
build: 2.5.0-0.6.beta

Comment 8 Preethi Thomas 2014-10-09 15:45:10 UTC
[root@cloud-qe-15 ~]# rpm -qa pulp-server
[root@cloud-qe-15 ~]# 

kickstarted rhel6 with the synced repo from cdn
