You specify both 'text' and 'cmdline' in the kickstart. That seems wrong.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-23 12:06:50 EDT
The warning isn't relevant here, anyway.

Bill Peck, see Bill Nottingham's comment about specifying both text and cmdline.

Comment 5 Bill Peck 2009-06-24 10:49:22 EDT
It has never caused a problem before.  The last one is the one that anaconda uses.  The real problem is masked by cmdline mode because it doesn't show the erorr.  If we were in text mode I imagine it would prompt about the dist since if I remember correctly this is the can't commit after 5 retries bug.
