Description Michael Redinger 2000-10-12 12:44:21 UTC
When doing a full install, creating a kickstart file and installing on a
Dell PII, everything works fine. Using the same kickstart file on P1
machines (Compaq P 150, P 200), this doesn't work.

Seems like these older computers have problems when installing
kernel-enterprise. Ok, makes sense, but please use a better error message
(or even better: silently ignore the kernel-enterprise package).

Removing kernel-enterprise from the list of packages that should be
installed solves this problem.

Attaching anaconda dump.

Since you were explicitely telling the installer via kickstart to install the
enterprise kernel on a machine which could not run it, this isn't really a bug.
