Description Patrick Hofmann 2001-09-04 14:50:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

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):

How reproducible:

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

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-06 00:11:45 UTC
Did you use genhdlist after updating your comps file and adding the packages to
the RPMS directory?

Comment 3 Patrick Hofmann 2001-09-06 09:50:40 UTC
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....

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-09-06 12:01:57 UTC
you must run genhdlist from the anaconda-runtime package to update the hdrlist.
