Description dex 2007-05-14 16:32:35 UTC
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to start when using kickstart file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.2.0.58-1
busybox-anaconda-1.2.2-8.fc7
anaconda-runtime-11.2.0.58-1

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run anaconda using kadischi.
2. run anaconda from cmd-line.
3.
  
Actual results:
anaconda goes into an endless 99% usage loop. 

Expected results:
anaconda to build install tree. 

Additional info:
Not using a kickstart file brings up the gui and package selection as normal
which then fails to grab some rpms & Release notes from mirrors. so thats two
bugs in one report will separate if requested.

using this command-line now brings up a successful text install, 
anaconda --kickstart=/home/dexter/mini-ks-cfg.ks --nompath --nodmraid
--rootpath=/tmp/kadischi.oluQuu

Comment 9 dex 2007-06-30 10:46:03 UTC
ok basically it failed again with anaconda.i386 0:11.2.0.66-1
but the way it failed raised the question about yum 3.2.1-1 it dies if you
peruse the logs reverting yum to 3.1.7-2 confirmed this breakage.


Comment 10 Chris Lumens 2007-07-02 14:22:05 UTC
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
