RE: kickstart comps file dilemma



Yeah, I had generated a fresh hdlist. I figured out what it was, thought. My
comps file was referencing rpms that were not on the cd. I could of sworn I
went through the comps file with a fine toothed comb, but not fine enough I
guess. So I went line by line once again through the comps file and found 2
missing rpms. 

Thanks though!

Looks like your hdlist doesn't match what's on your cd.  Did you run
genhdlist?

cd /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime
genhdlist --withnumbers /path/to/root/of/your/distribution

Greetings all,
   Apologies if this has perhaps already been covered, but I couldn't find a
solution on redhat's site, in any of the documentation, or in the digest
archives. 
   I am attempting to create an automated (RH 7.3) kickstart iso image, the
image is built fine, it boots, and even gets into anaconda, but then it
crashes out after partitioning the drive. Directly after displaying the
"reading package information" dialog box. I have modified the comps file to
match the rpms I have included in my image, and I also have the ks.cfg file
set up to install only the available package groups. 
   I dumped the error text and perhaps this could help me get some answers?
I would appreciate any advice offered. I am attaching the full dump, in case
this might help with debugging. 

Thanks,
Derek Verbeeck
