This problem does not make sense and yet i am facing it :(
i am using kickstart files to automate fedora installation, and the same
kickstart file is working in fedora8 properly, but with fedora9 it does not
even install scim.
Is there any change done on how we have to list the packages we want to
install in fedora9, but in that case even other packages should not have
been installed, but they are working fine. I dont know where is problem, if
possible can you help me to figure that out.

here is kickstart file for fedora9:

#platform=x86, AMD64, or Intel EM64T
# System authorization information
auth  --useshadow  --passalgo=md5
# Use graphical install
# Firewall configuration
firewall --disabled
firstboot --disable
# Use interactive kickstart installation method
# System keyboard
keyboard us
# System language
lang en_US
# SELinux configuration
selinux --enforcing
# Install OS instead of upgrade
# Use CDROM installation media

# System timezone
timezone Asia/Calcutta
# X Window System configuration information
xconfig  --startxonboot
# System bootloader configuration
bootloader --location=mbr
# Partition clearing information
clearpart --none



kickstart for fedora8 is also same, in fedora8 scim and language packages
are getting installed but not in fedora9.
