install screen shot

Description of problem:
The attached screen shot is better than words......
Somewhat amusing too.

What works:
Virtual box host, Fedora 9 DVD iso. This works as it should.

What fails:
On a real F9 box, with all updates, run Pungi as:
pungi --force --nosource -G -c /root/Fedora-Build/f9-fedora.ks
pungi --force --nosource -C -B -I --nosplitmedia -c /root/Fedora-Build/f9-fedora.ks

The ks file contains:
repo --name=fedora --mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-9&arch=$basearch
# repo --name=fedora-source --mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-source-9&arch=$basearch
repo --name=fedora-updates --mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f9&arch=$basearch
repo --name=fedora-updates-source --mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-source-f9&arch=$basearch

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
see above
Actual results:
When the install begins, as soon as the anaconda GUI comes up, there are no characters at all. Just rectangular boxes where the letter should be - can not read anything.

Expected results:
Usable install image

Additional info:
After a long time with Google, searching the anaconda bugs and pungi bugs, I could find nothing similar.
So, I could be doing something wrong to invoke this error - but I have no idea what that might be.

This is due to F9 needing you to specify in your kickstart config all the bits and parts that anaconda needs, including fonts.

With rawhide leading up to F10, anaconda buildinstall will fetch the things it needs form the repos that pungi uses, so this is no longer a problem.  I'm closing this nextrelease.
