Description dex 2007-05-14 12:32:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to start when using kickstart file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run anaconda using kadischi.
2. run anaconda from cmd-line.
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.

ok basically it failed again with anaconda.i386 0:
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 10:22:05 EDT
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
