It appears the custom comps file you have created may have problems.

If you attempt to install from an unmodified tree does it work?

Comment 2 Ruan Viljoen 2002-11-04 07:26:33 UTC
We have not tweaked the installation at all, except for building the kickstart 
file.  If I install from that same ftp location, without the ks file, the 
install works fine.The comps file has not changed at all.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-05 20:40:55 UTC
Ok I understand - remove 'Minimal' from the end of the kickstart file.

This appears to be a bug with the ks generation program.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-11-06 19:46:47 UTC
Yep.  Fix committed to cvs.  I removed the "Minimal" and "Everything" choices
since they aren't in comps.xml anymore.  Should be fixed in
redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.3-5.  Thanks for your report.
