Description of problem:
I'm trying to get kickstart from a hard disk working using the following in my

harddrive --partition /dev/hda6 --dir cdrom

Installation proceeds until the postinstall section is reached (this
seems to be before my customised post install script is run), whereupon it bombs
out with a python traceback complaining about xmouse.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put the appropriate ks.cfg on a boot floppy and boot from it
2. wait ~10 minutes

Actual Results:   Installation crashes with python traceback

Expected Results:  System install completes cleanly

Additional info:


1) python traceback
2) ks.cfg

for free.
