Now I've read the whole message


and I see that it's mainly pirut's problem. Right?
Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2008-02-05 11:20:39 EST
Correct, this would be a problem with the pirut component, which we pull in for
packaging selection.  It's possible I'm not setting something up right in
s-c-kickstart, but I think we get this same message in anaconda so I'm leaning
towards an internal pirut problem.
Comment 8 Michal Nowak 2008-02-05 11:32:44 EST
OK, thanks, I reported it piruts's maintainer. 

I guess we can wait come time for his opinion:
