until now (even in beta1) our manual kickstart file was working without packages section and anaconda only ask those part which was not present in ks files, but now we've got an error says the attached error, even with this minimal ks file:

For some reason (probably due to not enough memory), anaconda determined that it needed to do a text install instead of a graphical one.  Package selection is no longer present in text installs, so this is working as designed.  You'll need to examine your anaconda.log and see why a text install was chosen.
