Description Alexander Todorov 2010-06-09 10:49:44 EDT
Description of problem:

With a ks.cfg file containing:
firewall --enabled --telnet

# ksvalidator telnet.ks 
The following problem occurred on line 1 of the kickstart file:

--telnet option requires an argument

This also causes anaconda to abort if used during install. This option doesn't seem to require arguments. Other options such as --http, --ftp work as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a ks.cfg with "firewall --enabled --telnet"
Actual results:

Expected results:
No error

Comment 2 Alexander Todorov 2010-07-02 11:55:59 EDT
With pykickstart-1.74-1.el6.noarch

# ksvalidator ks.cfg 
Ignoring deprecated option on line 8:  The --telnet option has been deprecated and no longer has any effect.  It may be removed from future releases, which will result in a fatal error from kickstart.  Please modify your kickstart file to remove this option.

# echo $?

Using this ks.cfg with anaconda has no effect. Moving to VERIFIED.
