Description of problem:
Kickstart-installation over nfs stops when anaconda reads package
information out of the kickstart-file, only if Power-Tool-Packages are
listed in the kickstart file, e.g. like mpich or autorpm (otherwise the
installation is successful).
The error message (see anaconda.txt): Cannot find these packages, even if I
had copied all Power-Tools packages like all packages of both binary CDs
with " cp -a /mnt/cdrom/RedHat /kickstart/cd-img-7.1 "to my nfs server
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using kickstart-file with package names of the Power Tools CD, e.g. mpich
2.Kickstart-Installation over NFS
Actual Results: Installation stops while anconda reading the package list
out of the kickstart-file with the message that packages (only those from
Power Tools) cannot be found
Expected Results: Successful installation of the packages of the Power
Tools CD, e.g. mpich or autorpm, because they are in my NFS-directory

Did you use genhdlist after updating your comps file and adding the packages to
the RPMS directory?
I only copied the files to my nfs directory.
Sorry, but ...
how can I update my comps file? Didn't find informations about this and cannot
find anything like genhdlist in order to create a new hdlist file....
you must run genhdlist from the anaconda-runtime package to update the hdrlist.
