Last modified: 2010-08-13 19:31:31 EDT
Description of problem:
"VMWare Easy Install" isn't as streamlined as it should be. Multiple complaints by installer about invalid package Group selection.
Please fix component in this bugzilla entry. Not sure what it should be, maybe anaconda ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start VMWare Player 3.1.1
2.Create new VM, select ISO and click for Easy Install options ("Whats This")
3.Fill in admin account credentials
4.Click Next to start install
5.Wait less than 30 seconds
6.You see the first of a number of warnings: "You have specified that the group "Internet Applications" should be installed. This group does not exist. Would you like to continue or abort this installation?"
Unexpected warning/error dialogs.
Expected streamlined install of default configuration.
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
This is a bug in the kickstart file included in VMWare. We can't fix that. (VMWare knows about this, and stated an intent to fix it.)
