Description of problem:
If I include only Minimal packages in ks.cfg anaconda bails out with a Python
error message 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Include only this in your ks.cfg


Installation will fail. I may have even included packages such as DHCP and
similar thing happened :-(.

Could you actually attach the traceback you receive?  I do minimal kickstarts
all the time without problems

Comment 2 Wolfgang Ocker 2002-11-20 18:35:18 UTC
[ Network boot with bootnet.img, ks.cfg on floppy. ]

The output of the Kickstart Configurator reads as

  %packages --resolvedeps

when selecting "Minimal" in the packages selection. Anaconda doesn't know about
that and returns a key error "Minimal" in line 580 of comps.py. I tried "@Base"
and it worked.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-11-20 18:47:52 UTC
Minimal isn't a package group found in the comps file.

Comment 4 Wolfgang Ocker 2002-11-20 19:20:55 UTC
Yes, so the problem is with the graphical kickstart configurator here ...

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-11-22 20:18:11 UTC
Shouldn't this be reassigned to ksconfig component then ?

Time tracking values updated
