Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53219
automatically generated kickstart file incorrect

Description of Problem:
In the RC2 installer, when I select 24bpp, the anaconda-ks.cfg file created in
/root/ still gives me:
xconfig --card "ATI Rage Mobility" --videoram 8192 --hsync 31.5-48.5 --vsync
40-70 --resolution 1024x768 --depth 32

specified 24 in the installer, and the kickstart file contains "32" instead of
24. So, if I were to use the kickstart file, I would have a non-working
XF86Config-4 configuration (assuming that the "32" from the kickstart file was
correctly used during a kickstart).
Shouldn't I get the 24 that I am selecting in the installer in the kickstart
file as well?... or is there some similarity between 24bpp and 32bpp (I think I
remember some for whatever reason in the past) that should equate the two
settings to each other?
24 and 32 are the same; people think it's 32 but it always does 24bpp in the X
