I'm trying to get a stable build set up for all of my machines so I was
trying to recreate the build I had on another machine so it could be
repeated. I want only a specific set of packages and
system-config-kickstart only allows the selection of groupings.
So, I tried system-config-kickstart last night. I used it to get an
'everything' build working on my other machine, and then took the
package listing from the anaconda-ks.cfg of the original custom build
and slid it underneath the %packages --resolvedeps directive and tried
again. It failed trying to resolve the dependencies for the @ office
group. It put me into a Python debugging session afterwards.
Does the fact that I'm attempting this from a floppy and the RPM's are
on a set of removeable CD's make any difference? Perhaps --resolvedeps
can't do its work because it can't see all the RPM's at install time?
Thanks - Tod
