Description James Cape 2008-10-09 10:47:13 EDT
Description of problem:

Acroread lists itself as a provider of libstdc++, in a kickstart install where Supplementary is made available as a repo, this means that anaconda will select acroread as the provider. When the system boots, there will be no usable libstdc++, which happens to be a dependency of RPM, etc.

IOW, you cannot kickstart a box and use the supplementary repo (so much for pre-installed Java) and end up with a usable system afterwords.

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

According to bug # 434762, which this is a likely duplicate of (in a new product), this has been ongoing since RHEL4.

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a minimal (i.e. @base) kickstart with the supplementary repository listed
2. Kickstart a box using #1
3. Anything depending on libstdc++ (RPM being the largest) is severely borked.

Actual results:

acroread is selected as the provider for libstdc++.

Expected results:

libstdc++ is the provider of libstdc++.

Additional info:

How did this make it into the wild?
