I see: customized kickstart.

Following found in ks:

> %packages --ignoremissing
> # Error: no snippet data for rhts_packages

Bill, is there a snippet to get list of tasks "dependencies"?

Is rhts_packages supposed to be one, but missing?


Branislav, IMO you could try adding following into your ks:


#if $getVar('packages', '') == '':

## If packages variable is set add additional packages to this install
## packages=httpd:selinux:kernel
#set _packages = $getVar('packages','').split(':')
#for $package in $_packages:
#end for
#end if ## if packages


No warranty provided! It may not be what you want, esp. if you want only @base

As Bill has pointed out, the original issue is solved. However, going forward we will probably try and have these issues resolved outside of the beaker client.

Hi Bill,
I believe this is not fixed. See this job:

the virt/install test case has Requires: xorg-x11-server-Xvfb but this is not installed (see install.log).

Comment 9 Alexander Todorov 2011-10-19 17:39:50 UTC
Closing again. 

xorg-x11-server-Xvfb is in the optional repository which is not available during install hence the package is missing.
