Anaconda dump file
Are you changing your comps file at all? What does the kickstart config you are
using look like?
The question was asked by firstname.lastname@example.org what the kickstart file looked like
and if I had modified the comps file. I did not modify the comps file but used
that found on the CD. I did manage to find a work around, however. I saw at the
bottom of the dump file that the error was triggered by (i386)GRUB. So I created
an identical kickstart file except chose the option to use LILO instead of
GRUB.Ran into anther problem like having to force primary partitions but that is
not related to the anacdump. Attached is the working ks.cfg. I don;t have the
nonfunctional ks.cfg as it was modified by using the above mentioned modifications.

Was what was included in the ks.cfg

KeyError: i386: grub
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <comps.HeaderListFromFile instance at 8279958>
item: i386: grub
Using lilo instead of default (grub) works (no dump).
I was able to get this ks file to work once I removed these non-existant packages:
