Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2006-02-27 19:50:50 UTC
Fixed by breaking a dependency cycle that was causing lots of packages to not
get sorted in the rpm transaction properly.

/root/install.log after bad install

I never saw any mention of rpmtsOrder but here is the install.log with the
scriplet errors. I can include the anaconda.ks and install.log.syslog if need

Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2006-02-27 20:01:07 UTC
Thomas - this appears to be the same issue.  Note that in the install.log, lots
of scripts are failing.  This is because packages are getting installed before
other packages that contains the things they are running in %post scripts.  In
particular, look at all the "command not found" messages in relation to where
coreutils gets installed.
