Description Jeff Iddings 2002-12-27 14:32:51 UTC
Description of problem:
If cpio is removed from packages to be installed during a custom install, it
does not cite a dependancy.  However, the installer tries to execute /bin/cpio
during the final install stage, anyway.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat Beta Phoebe.
2. Choose custom install.
3. Remove cpio from selected packages. 
4. Continue normally with install.  
Actual results:
During final stages, non-fatal error will appear -- "/bin/cpio not found" 

Expected results:
Normal final stage install, no errors.  Or would have expected a cpio dependancy
or require cpio's installation.

Additional info:
Unfortunately I do not know exactly where this error is occuring -- I'm not an
installer whiz... or whiz at all.. :)

This smells like an anaconda/comps issue.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-29 22:35:19 UTC
cpio is in the mandatory list for Core.  If you remove them, you're shooting
yourself in the foot.  Rawhide has some code to make it impossible to do so
outside of kickstart
