Description Jonathon M. Robison 2002-03-13 15:59:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.8-31.2mdk i686)

Description of problem:
Anaconda failes with traceback just after getting the pretty X screen with the
RH logo. I have removed my %post section, altered the --xconfig, changed the
parts, etc. etc. In all cases, anaconda fails.
See attachements for the ks.cfg and the anacdump.txt

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create boot floppy with bootnet.img (from CD or upgraded, no diff)
2.Create NFS kickstart file ks.cfg and add to the floppy
3. Boot up!

Actual Results:  Fails just after the nice X RH logo (white bg) comes up. Fails
with anaconda traceback.
DHCP and NFS worked fine.

Expected Results:  I expected it to install!

Your comps file is referencing a libtool-libs package which does not exist in
your installation tree.

So anaconda isn't smart enough to skip it with a warning?  Geesh guys - you know
that all these ks.cfg files are hand edited - people are gonna make typos and
such - you can't let anaconda fail with such a non-informative message!

I'll give it another shot and see if it works w/o the libtools-lib package in
the list.
