Description James Laska 2010-02-11 20:34:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Perform a text-mode install.  Boot into the installed system and inspect the packages installed.

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

 * anaconda-13.25

How reproducible:
 * 100% (3 out of 3 attempts)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a text-mode install (I used a virt guest while booting with "serial console=ttyS0")
2. Boot installed system
3. Attempt to install additional software
Actual results:

-bash-4.1# rpm -Uvh http://server/path/to/package.rpm
-bash: rpm: command not found

-bash-4.1# yum
-bash: yum: command not found

Expected results:

rpm and yum should be installed I think?

Additional info:

 * The /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file lists no %packages.  According to jkeating, when no packages are listed, it should install @base and @core.

-bash-4.1# tail -n2 anaconda-ks.cfg

 * Raising as an F13Alpha blocking bug as this prevents point#14 of the Alpha release criteria (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Alpha_Release_Criteria)
   "#  The installed system must be able to download and install updates with yum and PackageKit "

Tested using a text-mode install with anaconda-13.26 (F-13-Alpha-TC2).  The installed system contains rpm and yum as expected.
