Description ajs 2003-01-10 22:06:08 UTC
Description of problem:
When I %include a file containing a list of packages to be installed,  
kickstart seems to decide on its own what packages to install.

I'll attach my kickstart files soon and also the anaconda-ks.cfg generated
during the install.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the %pre section of the kickstart file create "/tmp/include-test2.cfg"
which is a list of packages to install
2. Use the following lines to define packages in the kickstart file:
   %packages --resolvedeps
   %include "/tmp/include-test2.cfg"
3. Compare the packages actually installed to those requested.
