Description Petter Hassberg 2011-09-09 10:59:49 UTC
Description of problem:
Installer does not install syslinux package which provides /usr/share/syslinux/pxelinux.0 so PXE provisioning won't work out of the box unless installing said package out side of installer (and if installing after sat, running cobbler sync)

Not a big deal but one can argue that it would make installation easier.

Possibly dupe of bug 707172 ?

It looks like we were adding the syslinux package to explicit rhelrpms list in bug 504776 but only on RHEL 4. And it never got to Satellite 5.4 (RHEL 5 and RHEL 6).
