Description Le Guen Jean-Claude 2001-11-29 09:40:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [fr] (WinNT; I)

Description of problem:
traceback on every installation.
installation can't be done

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make an install with kickstart and a french version

Additional info:

 I installed the rehat 7.2 on a station DELL.
  The manual installation occurred well.  
The operation of update is not possible from a version 7.1 installed beforehand:
  Error on the file swap which is on a logical partition in/dev/hda8
 the facilities of the 7.2 by Kickstart stops by messages of error,
 despite tests on a half dozen different stations.
  Spin "usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py" Line 796 In definePartition 
raise ValueError 
"Partition command requires has size specification install exited abnormally
 it is however the same file ks.cfg which is used for the installation 
of the 7.1(no problem), only the mount point NFS is modified of 7.1 
into 7.2

Some of the kickstart file syntax has changed between 7.1 and 7.2; could you
please attach the ks.cfg you're using (sanitized for any sensitive information
of course)

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-12-03 23:47:46 EST
Ahh...I see the problem.  In the %packages section of the kickstart file, you
have "Printer Support".  It should be "Printing Support", not "Printer".  Please
reopen this report if changing that doesn't fix the problem.

Other package group names have changed as well.  Please look in the
RedHat/base/comps file to see the new names of package groups.
