Description of problem:
See attachment...We created a CD-ROM that includes all the packages we need on
one CD-ROM instead of three. On my Linux machine, I installed anaconda source
code and ran the genhdlist command to make everything flush....but I am not
sure if it all worked. If you need more information, let me know. Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart the computer.
2. Put floppy boot disk in.
3. Error message comes up.

Did you edit the comps file to remove the packages you'd removed from the CDs?
After editing the comps file....it came up with even more errors....Here is the
attached file...I am looking at whether the genhdlist command was done
correctly...what is the correct way to use that command?....all the RPMs that I
need are in the /RedHat/RPMS directory...Thanks!

New Trackback Errors
I believe you may have removed too many packages. It is not easy to trim the
distribution down. Lots of packages depend on other packages.
Anyway if you get a traceback like:
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 153, in __getitem__
that means the comps file is referring to a package called 'gdbm' which is not
present in the RedHat/RPMS directory. You need to either put the package back,
or remove the reference from the comps file.
OK...I have been following the process outlined in the response given here:
http://www.redhat.com/mailing-lists/ia64-list/msg00882.html ....very helpful!
I kept my comps file with all rpms listed and not removing any lines from it. I
ran genhdlist and then pkgorder with the tee and I receive the following lines:
File "/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/pkgorder", line 14 in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 22 in ?
from translate import _, N_
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/translate.py", line 16 in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gettext_rh.py", line 43 in ?
import os, string, iutil, gzread
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 16 in ?
import types, os, sys, isys, select, string, stat, signal
Import error:No module named isys
How do I import these missing files where they need to be, if that is what I am
supposed to do? Do I really need to remove the references of any unused RPMS in
the comps file, even after altering my RPMS directory? Thanks for all your help
