Thank you a lot.

I have a problem with creating modified distribution (subset of Fedora,
RHEL3, RH9, RawHide and own packages) for kickstart server. FTP
installation crash just 20% after "Preparing RPM transaction" (no
traceback, only shutting down...)

This is what I did:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/anaconda
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime:/usr/share/comps-extras
export BASEDIR=/var/ftp/pub/linux/mydist/i386

# copy RedHat/RPMS/* and RedHat/base/comps.xml to $BASEDIR
genhdlist --withnumbers --productpath RedHat $BASEDIR
pkgorder $BASEDIR i386 > /tmp/pkgorder.txt
getfullcomps.py comps.xml $BASEDIR i386 > /tmp/comps.temp
# no error mesage here
pushd /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime
buildinstall --comp $BASEDIR/HLinux/base/comps.xml \
             --pkgorder /tmp/pkgorder.txt --version 1 \
             --product "MyDist" --release 1 $BASEDIR

# at this point I tryed to install from FTP server via boot.iso
splittree.py --arch=i386 --total-discs=6 --bin-discs=3 --src-discs=3
             --release-string="HLinux" --pkgorderfile=/tmp/pkgorder.txt
             --distdir=$BASEDIR --srcdir=$BASEDIR/SRPMS
genhdlist --withnumbers $BASEDIR-disc[1..6]
