Using kickstart with "mouse --kickstart none" in ks.cfg my produces a
python syntax error.

The following patch fixes the problem.

kickstart.py
228,229c228
<       (args, extra) = isys.getopt(args, '', [ 'device=', 'emulthree',
<                                     'kickstart'])
---
>       (args, extra) = isys.getopt(args, '', [ 'device=', 'emulthree' ])

Brock - please verify this is fixed in pinstripe, the above patch already
appears to have been applied.

I tried to reproduce this bug and Anaconda crashes.  I get a Python traceback
that says:
Type Error: bad argument --kickstart: unknown option

According to the kickstart documentation for 6.2
(http://www.redhat.com/support/manuals/RHL-6.2-Manual/ref-guide/s1-kickstart2-commands.html),
--kickstart is not a valid entry for the mouse in the kickstart file.  However,
I've seen other reports in Bugzilla from other people trying to use the
--kickstart option.  Where does this come from?

Closing as not a bug.

Hey RedHat folks.  while trying to find help on my 'part' bug, found one example of the bad --kickstart arg to mouse reference:
http://www.linuxworld.com/linuxworld/lw-1999-12/lw-12-kickstart.html

both the HOWTO, and the RH Ref Guide make no mention BTW.
