Description of problem:
While using this program, if one leaves the mouse setting set to "Probe for
mouse", a comment gets written in the resulting ks.cfg that looks like this:
mouse #Probe for mouse
This causes the kickstart to fail. Removing the "#Probe for mouse" part fixes this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run redhat-config-kickstart
2. Choose "Probe for mouse"
3. Try to kickstart using the ks.cfg you created. Anaconda will error out with
a python error indicating that the "#Probe for mouse" directive is not understood.
Actual Results: The kickstart errors out.
Expected Results: The kickstart works if the line is removed.
Ah. I thought that anaconda's kickstart parser would ignore midline comments,
but apparently not. I've removed the comment so that the line just says 'mouse'
now. This should cause anaconda to probe for the mouse.
Should be fixed in redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.8-1 and should appear in Rawhide
soon. Thanks for your report.
