The machine has been booted once after install.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2008-06-10 07:09:43 EDT
How was the machine installed, and what yum command gave those errors?
Comment 2 Bjorge Solli 2008-06-10 07:23:47 EDT

yum groupinstall "Printing Support"

I note that after some more packages are in place (a lot) it works fine to do it
manually. The error is from a firstboot-script that installs packages not
installed by the kickstart script. The kickstart script installs these packages:

So the install is very minimal when yum tries to install "Printing Support",
even though our firstboot script installs some packages before atempting at the
"Printing Support", more precisely:
"X Window System"

Hope this helps.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2008-06-10 07:43:52 EDT
Sounds like a bad mirror.  Changing component to yum for further analysis.
Comment 4 Bjorge Solli 2008-06-10 07:53:56 EDT
The mirror is local, so that might be the case. We mirror the (official)
ftp.uninett.no every two hours. I am not sure if we (ftp.uib.no) are an official
mirror. Kickstart uses
url --url

There is a x86_64 version too, but Im' currently only trying on 32-bit.

The actual kickstart file is this one:

I can try on a different mirror of you give me one you believe to be correct.
Comment 6 seth vidal 2008-06-11 14:05:06 EDT
Try using any other mirror or check again now and see if your mirror has caught up.
Comment 7 Bjorge Solli 2008-06-14 10:36:02 EDT
I tried again on our mirror. It still fails.

I tried directly on the main ftp-server at RedHat, but it was too slow/not
responding, so I changed to
as it seems they mirror directly from redhat.

It resulted in the same error.
Comment 8 Seth Vidal 2008-06-16 14:38:53 EDT
run this:

yum list hpijs hplip

and report the output so I can understand what you're seeing.

Comment 9 Bjorge Solli 2008-06-20 05:14:57 EDT
hpijs.i386                               1:2.8.2-2.fc9          fedora          
hplip.i386                               2.8.2-2.fc9            fedora  

Sorry for the late answer.
Comment 10 Bjorge Solli 2008-06-20 09:03:10 EDT
I did verify the problem once more now, but I realised I can successfully do a
yum groupinstall "Printing Support" 
after the installation is finished. What this means I don't know.
Comment 11 James Antill 2008-08-07 14:56:03 EDT
 Can you try this with the 3.2.18 that's just gone into updates-testing ... if that fails can you post the "yum -d 8" output of the printing install?
Comment 12 Bjorge Solli 2008-08-12 07:46:17 EDT
(In reply to comment #11)

I cannot find 3.2.18 in updates-testing, am I missing something?

# yum -d 8

Comment 13 Bjorge Solli 2008-08-12 08:25:34 EDT
I found a src.rpm and rebuilded it myself, but it occurs to me that I have no way of testing this as it is not in the install repo to be used when reinstalling.
Comment 14 seth vidal 2009-01-21 13:10:54 EST
If you find it still happens or something similar happens, please open a new bug. I think the set of circumstances causing this bug are passed.
