Description Gene Czarcinski 1999-10-18 01:49:37 UTC
anaconda does not handle misspelled package names very
well.  If a package name is misspelled in RedHat/base/comps,
anaconda dies.

For example, if wu-ftp is specified instead of wu-ftpd,
anaconda dies.  The "old" installer issued an error message
and continued.
