User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows 95)

Description of problem:
In the 7.1 manual, it says @ Gnome Workstation can be used in the %package 
section (see URL I pasted above)of a kickstart file.  If I use @ Gnome 
Workstation, I receive an error (see Actual Results section).  If I look 
in the comps file, I don't see an entry for Gnome Workstation although 
there is one for Gnome.  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Make a kickstart file with @ Gnome Workstation in the %packages section
2.  Try to do kickstart on a computer.  You should receive the same thing 
I do.

Actual Results:  The kickstart does not work and I get the following 

Traceback (innermost last):  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 520, in ?
intf.run(todo, test = test)  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1126, in run    rc
= apply (step[1](), args)  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 551, in __call__
if todo.doInstall ():  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1698, in doInstall
self.getCompsList()  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 770, in
getCompsList    self.updateInstClassComps ()  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 798, in
updateInstClassComps    self.comps[n].select()  File
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 291, in
__getitem__    return self.compsDict[key]KeyError: Gnome Workstation

Expected Results:  The kickstart should have worked and done a workstation 
install on the machine.

Additional info:

What do I use to do a workstation install in 7.1?  Do I need to just list 
out every package in a workstation install?

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-05-22 13:14:24 UTC
You are correct.  I've confirmed this problem.  However, I think the component
should be changed.  We should fix this in the documentation, not the installer.

You should be able to say '@GNOME'.  Thanks for your report.

Comment 2 Tammy Fox 2001-05-22 19:44:21 UTC
Thanks for catching this. I verified all the package name categories 
given in the examples against the comps file and fixed them.

Fixed in CVS for next release.
