Er, s/Datacenter/Colo/ What if it's just my box there, I'm not going to hassle with setting up my laptop to be a kickstart server to reinstall one system or two. My laptop might be the install source, but not a full blown kickstart box.

And then the kickstart install should be something like:


%packages



%post
yum remove \*.i?86
yum install stuff_I_want

Doesn't this seem backwards to you? Have anaconda run through, do all the dep checking, pull all the packages down and install them, then remove half of it (redoing dep checking), get a new list of packages to install, dep check again, download some more, and then install again?

what about adding a nomultilib boot option to anaconda and document it in the release notes?
-> problem solved
