Description of problem:

On trying to do a RHEL 6.2 installation with kickstart we hit error  “Error Parsing Kickstart Config”

Upon going through the anaconda logs, the following error is observed:

“ImportError: No module named kudzu”

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. define "import kudzu" in kickstart 
2. start installation using kickstart.

Actual results:
“ImportError: No module named kudzu”

Expected results:
system go through installation. 

Additional info:
This error is not noticed in RHEL 6.0 and RHEL 6.1.  Is there a change in RHEL 6.2?

There is no kudzu package in RHEL6 anymore.  You'll need to find another way to do whatever hardware detection you're doing.
Comment 4 Gireesha 2012-03-09 07:37:22 EST
Is onbiosdisk=80 still supported? We see kick start installation abruptly halted
at this line. Earlier we were confused that it was halting at kudzu.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2012-03-09 09:57:36 EST
Yes, onbiosdisk is still supported.  However, bugzilla is not a support system.  If you're seeing a problem with onbiosdisk, please talk to your PM/support representative/etc. and they will raise the problem through the appropriate channels.  Thanks.
