Description Johannes Schmid 2004-11-14 08:56:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-AT; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20040910

Description of problem:
When installing FC3 from CD-ROM using a kickstart file from floppy,
the detailed package selection from the kickstart file is lost when
"interactive" mode is enabled in the kickstart file.

I.e. if I have a ks.cfg file like the following:
-----------------------------------
install
cdrom
interactive
[...]

%packages
@ editors
@ system-tools
@ german-support
@ text-internet
@ gnome-desktop
@ dialup
@ ftp-server
@ smb-server
@ base-x
@ web-server
@ mail-server
@ server-cfg
@ sql-server
@ admin-tools
@ development-tools
@ graphical-internet
-tux
-webalizer
-squid
e2fsprogs
grub
kernel-smp
postgresql
postgresql-jdbc
postgresql-server
php-pgsql

%post
-----------------------------------

postgresql, postgresql-jdbc, postgresql-server (and so on) is not
selected when I click on "Details" next to "SQL Server" during the
interactive installation.

However, if I remove the "interactive" statement from the ks.cfg,
these packages will get installed.




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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create ks.cfg file with modified packages, then add "interactive"
2. install FC3 using this ks.cfg file
3. check package selection in "Details" during interactive install
    

Actual Results:  Wrong packages (i.e. default packages) are selected

Expected Results:  Specified packages should be selected

Next anaconda build supports this properly with new ui.
