Description of problem:
There are some inconsistencies between RHEL4 out of the box and system-config-kickstart.
One noticable inconsistence is the Kernel Development meta package which shows on system-config-kickstart but doesnt appear in comps.xml of RHEL4.
This is one inconsistency, which causes some discomfort, but i'm pretty sure if i'll find the time to dig it, more will follow.
The incorrect package selection is in the file /usr/share/system-config-kickstart/RHELPackageGroupList.py
It is a minor bug, but as i said, there might be more inconsistencies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-config-kickstart and choose the Kernel Development package
2. Save your arbitary kickstart file
3. Run a kickstart installation and notice that you cant install the Kernel Development package
Actual Results: Installer prompts for user input
Expected Results: The installer should have ran without asking anything
There is a very easy workaround, which is just not to check that box, but i had already enough confused and inexperienced users who wasted their time on this minor bug.
