Description Pablo 2009-02-26 07:39:15 EST
Description of problem:

If you automatize an installation using a kickstart conf, if 'text' is used then the installation stops in the welcome screen with the 'Welcome to Fedora9!' message requesting user intervention.

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

Anaconda orginal version that comes with F9 DVD or netinstall

How reproducible:

Use a kickstart script like:
url --url
lang en_US
keyboard us

network --device eth0 --onboot yes --bootproto dhcp --hostname caca
# text will stop automatic installation.
rootpw welcome
firewall --disabled
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
selinux --disabled
timezone Europe/Paris
bootloader --location=mbr --append="rhgb quiet"
clearpart --all --initlabel
part / --fstype ext3 --size=10 --grow
part swap --size=512
%packages --nobase --ignoremissing 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify the kickstart conf to point to a valid ftp repository
2. launch install dvd with the kickstart conf in a floppy and ks=floppy:/ks.cfg

If 'text' is removed, then the installation goes through completely and fine.

This problem is not present in CentOS for example using the same script, neither in F10 using the same script.

Actual results:

Automated installation stops at welcome screen requiring user intervention.

Expected results:

Go through the automated install without asking questions.

This should be fixed in the current build of anaconda in Rawhide.  If you continue to experience this problem after testing either with that or with F11 beta (once it's released), please feel free to reopen this bug.
