Description of problem:
while '%packages --resolvedeps' is not in The Official Red Hat Linux 7.2
Customization Guide that is included in the AS2.1 docs CD, the file sample.ks of
that CD contains 

### Automatically resolve dependences
#%packages --resolvedeps

using the option makes anaconda crash with signal 11.

If the option is not to be used (as it is absent from the docs), please file as
a documentation bug so that the sample kickstart file reflects the
distribution's abilities.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use --resolvedeps
2. have amanda-client in %packages section
3. do not have amanda in %packages section

Actual Results:  anaconda crashes with signal 11

Expected Results:  resolution of dependency

Additional info:

here's what I used:
### Automatically resolve dependences
%packages --resolvedeps
### Ignore unresolved dependencies
#%packages --ignoredeps

--resolvedeps wasn't added as a supported option until Red Hat Linux 7.3.  Where
is the sample ks.cfg that you're looking at?

Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2003-01-22 13:48:46 UTC
"the file sample.ks of that CD contains"

where 'that CD' is the AS 2.1 documentation CD.

So this is a docs bug.

This bug has been inappropriately marked MODIFIED. Please review the bug life

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-22 16:48:45 UTC
(not really the IG, but that's the only docs component for AS)
Tammy -- did this just get pulled in somehow as a process skew as the pensacola
and hampton cds were being generated at the same time?

Comment 5 Tammy Fox 2003-01-22 17:57:09 UTC
Yep. At first the sampleks CVS module only contained one file that
was exported from CVS when the Docs CD was built. I have since changed
it to have a dir per product so it doesn't happen again. The translated
Docs CDs for AS are correct FWIW because they were made after I fixed
the module.

It is fixed for future releases in CVS so I am closing out the bug.
