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.
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
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(), 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
"/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

"/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.
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?
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.
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.
