error in installing FC4 with kickstart: (non existing packeges)



Hello,

I am trying to use kickstart to install FC4.
I did installed FC4 (without kickstart) and took the anaconda-ks.cfg
as a basis to use on installation on a new machine (which has the same
hw,exactly).


I am using http kickstart installation and get many messages like these:
...
PACKAGE NAME references package PACKAGE NAME which doesn't exist
PACKAGE NAME references package PACKAGE NAME which doesn't exist
PACKAGE NAME references package PACKAGE NAME which doesn't exist
...
...

and then I see an exception and the installation aborts (with printing trace)

googling a bit showed the following thread:
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=60555
it says there:
"...but I was able to cure this crash by removing
all of the "-package_name" lines I had in the %packages section.
I added "rpm -e package_name" commands in the %post section of
the kickstart file instead...that seems to do the trick for me."


but this seems to me not so proper way, not to say a bit silly (I did
not checked
if it works) ; there must be another way.


any ideas ?
MR
