We don't ship a kernel-ppdd package... are these official Red Hat Linux cds?
Indeed, I am installing from a Nokia internal site (not from CDs), which tailors
a RedHat based distribution, for Nokia internal purposes. I thought this was an
anaconda problem, and thus reported it as such. But it may well be that the
problem is in fact only an NFS connection problem, following which one package,
here this ppdd one, was not found. The maintainer of our site assured me the
package was there.
If it is so, you may want to close the case. Maybe the way the problem gets
detected by anaconda and reported, could however be enhanced?
Thanks for replying, and sorry if this was a spurious alarm.
It seems that the problem is not related to nfs as I thought previously, since

Putting case into NEEDINFO state until more info available.

My installation is still not succesful, but this is an other story. I suggest to
close this issue, unless again you want to deal it as a "reporting to end-user"
