Description Need Real Name 2002-09-24 17:02:36 EDT
The kickstart installation for redhat 7.3 does not work for us.
It generated an error message and gave the option to save a log to a floppy disk
which I did.

I'm having the same problem.  Kickstart was working fine for me,
then I edited the file to add and subtract a large number of packages,
to better customize the system.  Now it crashes reliably.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-09-26 08:28:31 EDT
I have learned a lot about kickstart in the last two days and am no longer
having the problem I complained about when I initiated this bug report.  I
can't remember the precise iteration at which I created the anaconda dump
but I believe that it was due either to a misspecified option or a bad package

I was trying to kickstart a bunch of new machines with a minimum of fuss in
the same way as a previous administrator who had built an older version of
redhat, but things had changed.  Maybe the error message could be a little
clearer.  Instead of telling the user to simply file a bug report kickstart
might check syntax or say "package not found" first.
