Re: Install order

Hi,

I have a custom cd with 249 rpm packages.
In the ks.cfg file the %packages section look like this (alphabet
order):

#Package install information
%packages --resolvedeps
@ everything
anacron
apr
apr-util
audit
audit-libs
authconfig
basesystem
....

But it starts to install the packages with the 'comps' package.

How does it decide what package to start the install with?

Based on the dependencies of each package. It installs comps first because comps contains dependency information for the rest of the packages, then it determines what order to install based on that dependency information, so if package 'bar' requires package 'foo' be installed, then foo will be installed before bar, regardless of what order they are in in your ks.cfg.
