RHEL5 Client package list question



Howdy, has anyone noticed any features with RHEL5 + anaconda and
packages selected vs packages actually installed.

I installed a system via CD with manual package selection, and attempted
to reuse the %package section from the resulting anaconda-ks.cfg file on
a system that uses kickstart/nfs/pxeboot and I get drastically different
sets of RPMS installed.

I know that since RHEL5 is yum based, perhaps there more going on behind
the scenes...is there an option that Kickstart requires that I could be
missing?

Package line from original anaconda-ks.cfg and kickstart file for 2nd
system

%packages
@admin-tools
@base
@core
@development-libs
@development-tools
@editors
@gnome-software-development
@system-tools
@text-internet
@x-software-development
kernel-devel

Here's a diff of sorted rpm -qa > /tmp/foo output from both systems
(first 25 lines)
