Description MW 2006-03-24 16:09:24 EST
Description of problem:
when trying (as root or as normal user) to run  system-config-kicktart on fresh
install of FC5 ( desktop-use profile + mc + win server + lynx + selinux disabled
receive errors:

- system-config-kickstart --generate test.cfg returns:
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/system-config-kickstart.py", line 58, in ?
 File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/system-config-kickstart.py", line 40,
in useCliMode
    import kickstartData
ImportError: No module named kickstartData

And there is no such module under /usr/share/system-config-kickstart dir ( old
verions have this module).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-kickstart-2.6.6-2 + pykickstart-0.23-1

How reproducible:
every run of the command as normal or root

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fresh with desktop use profile + mc + lynx + win server + selinux disabled
2.run system-config-kickstart --generate test.cfg
Actual results:
command returns above mentioned error

Expected results:
command should generate cfg file with actual configuration of the system

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2006-03-24 17:53:25 EST
Support for --generate was never really reworked for the new pykickstart method.
 I'll work up an FC5 update next week for this and put it updates-testing.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2006-03-27 11:12:01 EST
An update has been built into the FC5 updates-testing repository and will ship
within a day or two.  Please test this update when it is made available and
report whether it works for you or not.  Once it works, I will push it to
updates.  I have also built the fix into Rawhide.
