Description Enrico Scholz 2013-08-08 05:32:43 EDT
Description of problem:

The '--excludepkgs' switch of the 'repo' option seems to be ignored by recent anaconda.  It worked fine with previous versions.

E.g. I have

| repo --name=fedora-core ... --excludepkgs=cfengine
| repo --name=local ...

where the 'local' repository provides 'cfengine-2.2.10'. After installation, cfengine-3.3.0 from the 'fedora-core' repository is installed.

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

Fedora 19 installer

Can you please attach /tmp/packaging.log and /tmp/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.* to this bug report?  For that matter, where is fedora-core configured to install from?  Is that your own local repo?

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2013-08-21 15:34:57 EDT
I'm guessing your repo config file simply will not contain an exclude= line.  Can you confirm that suspicion?  I do not need the log files attached, turns out.

All kickstart repo problems appear to be somehow related to the repo getting removed in source.py:_update_payload_repos.
