Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-16 13:40:33 EST
Description of problem:
If I create a ks file with `*´ (without the quotes) as the single entry in
%packages (without any options), anaconda still proceeds to install the minimal
package set.  The docs seem to imply I'd have to use `--ignoremissing' for it to
not stop when it doesn't find package `*´.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a ks file with `*´ in %packages
2.Try to install with it

Actual results:
Installer doesn't complain about the package it can't find, and it doesn't
install every package either

Expected results:
It should complain, or the docs should be adjusted

I've restored the dialogs for unknown group and package names post test3 anaconda.
