Problem exists in Rawhide as well.
This should be fixed in 2.10.0.
Confirmed, system-config-kickstart-2.10.0-1.fc28 is installable in Rawhide.
So that it does not get lost: system-config-kickstart is not installable in F26 as well.
As it's not installable in F27 too, I used the following to install the Rawhide version of system-config-kickstart in an f27 system:
dnf install fedora-repos-rawhide
dnf install --nogpg --releasever=rawhide --enablerepo=rawhide system-config-kickstart
(Sorry for the --nogpg, but after going from bug 1473241 to bug 1546065 and bug 1438503 and still not making progress, I gave up and just wanted to move on.)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
FWIW, system-config-kickstart can be installed in F29 just fine, w/o adding rawhide repositories.
It can be installed in F28 as well.
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
