Description Peter Najdenik 2007-01-05 07:33:46 EST
Description of problem:
In the kickstart profiles advanced section, the xconfig field is truncated when
using doublequotes. e.g. when entering a line such as --card "Intel 915", the
input line is being truncated after --card after updating the kickstart profile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
occurs in RHN Satellite Server 4.1.5

How reproducible:
system->kickstart->profiles->details->advanced options
  -> xconfig field: --card "Intel 915" --resolution 1280x1024 etc.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
the field is being truncated to "--card" in the kickstart file

Expected results:
--card "Intel 915" etc.

Additional info:
it doesn't happen with single quotes, but the options don't seem to take effect
after kickstarting with such a profile
