Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-06-15 14:22:14 UTC
Fixed in Rawhide. A workaround for you is to specify an architecture on the package you're excluding. For instance, you would say: %packages @base -acpid.i386
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2005-06-15 17:58:39 UTC
What version of anaconda is this fixed in? It appears to me that the version of anaconda in rawhide is the same as that in FC4. I'd like to build a fixed set of install media...

Comment 5 Emil Mikulic 2005-06-21 07:47:03 UTC
Appending ".i386" works for me. Regular FC4 install media. I'm kickstarting over NFS.
Comment 6 Enrico Scholz 2005-06-21 08:47:19 UTC
FWIW; when you do not want to touch your existing kickstart files, a workaround for this problem might be: 1. install recent anaconda from rawhide (or only extract kickstart.py from it) 2. 'D=/tmp/update' 3. 'mkdir $D' 4. 'cp /usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py $D/' 5. 'mkcramfs $D updates.img' 6. place this 'updates.img' file into the base/ directory of your installation media (this is, where e.g. comps.xml or hdlist or netstg2.img already resides; this "installation media" might be a HTTP or FTP directory also). 7. when installing over HTTP or FTP, burn 'boot.iso' (7MB) from images/ and boot from it. DO NOT use the normal installation CD/DVD or rescue CD. With them, the stage2 data will be detected on the local media and the download from HTTP/FTP will be skipped.
Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2005-06-21 17:39:59 UTC
Thanks Enrico for the update suggestion! This works for me with the kickstart.py from 10.3.0.2. Adding arches is a bad solution for me as we use the same kickstart files for multiple arches.

Created attachment 116172 [details] kickstart file Attaching ks.cfg as requested
Comment 13 Tom Diehl 2005-06-30 19:50:47 UTC
Since this hits fc4, how about an update??
Comment 14 Paul Nasrat 2005-06-30 20:03:26 UTC
As it's in the installer a package update of anaconda wouldn't do much good. However an updates.img could be provided, and is probably a good idea.
Comment 15 Tom Diehl 2005-06-30 21:14:43 UTC
Makes sense to me. Thanks.
Comment 16 Fred Bourgeois 2005-07-01 18:09:50 UTC
Is there any plan to release an updates.img in the near future?

Adding the error message and some additional keywords to the active bug so that future searches are more likely to find it...
