Description Jared Greenwald 2005-03-30 19:09:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a proven kickstart setup where I install via url method from a local
webserver.  I dumped the new FC4-1 isos into a diretory to use as the install
base.  The system boots and attempts to run anaconda, but falls on its face
before doing anything meaningful.

How reproducible:
Boot the boot.iso in the FC4-1 images directory of the CDs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot to a kickstart that references FC4-1.
Actual results:
The output on the screen looks something like this:

Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
Could not find platform independant libraries <prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 28, in ?
    import sys, os
Import Error: No module named os
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done

...it halts (but doesn't power off) after this point...

Expected results:
System install based on the kickstart file.
