Description Need Real Name 2001-02-16 11:08:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)


I am trying to use kickstart with NFS and DHCP, the machine boots from the
floppy, retrieves the kickstart file, appears to read the packages, then
crashes.  It appears that anaconda cannot find a subroutine called
loadmeter.





Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and boot from RedHat Linux 7.0 bootnet.img
2. At the prompt: ks <enter>
3. Everything appears to work fine, the "Reading package information"
message shows up then anaconda crashes.
	

Actual Results:  Anaconda execption was caught requesting that I submit
debugging information to bugzilla.

Expected Results:  Expected RedHat Linux to be installed with specified
packages.

loadmeter is on the powertools CD. It cannot be installed via kickstart.

Classic "chair-to-keyboard interface error".  Sorry!
