Description Mads Kiilerich 1999-11-08 19:02:58 EST
When a rpm specified in comps doesn't exist in RPMS (or
isn't found for the right architecture) anaconda fails with
a python stack trace.

Instead it should give an error (or a list of errors) and
let the user continue installing as many packages as
possible.

(besides, anaconda has no entry in bugtraq; see reopened
ticket -- and I'm forced to guess!!!)

Regards,
Kiilerich
