RE: RHEL 4.2 Anaconda problems



Both my custom package and KSH were freshly built on RHEL 4.2 machine
and their file names were not modified.

Do I even need to run genhdlist?

Hello Chris,

I've run into something like this before ... make sure the packages you
add
have filenames consistent with their internal package names. Anaconda
isn't
smart enough to tell that 'foo.rpm' and 'foo-1.2rc.rpm' are the same
thing.

gedhdlist spits out a ton of stuff while it operates, so make sure it
doesn't
yield any critical errors. A script posted here may also be useful:

hth,
Klaus
