Did you regenerate the metadata for the repository?

--ignoremissing only says to ignore packages which are specified in %packages
which are not present in the tree metadata.
Comment 2 Colin Coe 2006-10-09 18:07:46 EDT
Ahh, my mistake.  I went looking for the anaconda docs and found that they still
referred to comps.xml not the yum .xml.gz files.  Where are the updated docs?
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-03-16 14:32:31 EDT
I've updated the documentation that ships with anaconda on the HEAD CVS branch.
 This is the source for the documentation on the website.  I don't think they
pull updated documentation at any point during the update cycle, though.  I'll
close this one out as NEXTRELEASE for now.  If it's really critical, reopen and
we can reassign to the docs team to see what they think.
