Description Sander Hoentjen 2005-08-16 16:25:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050729 Fedora/1.1-0.2.5.deerpark.alpha2 Firefox/1.0+

Description of problem:
I installed system-config-kickstart through yum, then I tried to launch it through the menu. Nothing seemed to happen so I tried with the console and got the following error:
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/usr/share/comps/i386/comps.xml"
Could not start because there is no /usr/share/comps/i386/comps.xml file.
Please make sure the comps package is installed.
After installing the comps package (yum install comps) all is fine.
So I guess system-config-kickstart should require comps?

I think the bigger question here is why the comps package was not installed.  Do
you remember what sort of install you did?
Comment 2 Sander Hoentjen 2005-08-22 05:59:17 EDT
I am not 100% sure but I think I did a pxe boot followed by an ftp install of FC4
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-09-23 12:12:02 EDT
You should grab the comps rpm from one of the Fedora mirrors (it should have a
name similar to comps-4-0.20050606.i386.rpm) and install it onto your machine. 
I don't know why it wouldn't have been installed to begin with.  For the future,
we have eliminated the comps RPM as part of the ongoing package selection work,
so s-c-kickstart will have to change how it lists packages.

I am closing this bug as WORKSFORME only because I cannot get the comps package
to be missing.  If you still experience problems even after installing that
package, feel free to reopen.
