Re: Anaconda Customization Woes

Hi Alex,

I had this idea and checked it yesterday. My installation CD includes these files:


Is this enough?

Hi Eduardo,

I had a similar issue (anaconda was complaining about not being a supported platform), but the core problem was that when i built the CD images, some of the RPMS were left out...most importantly, "kernel".

Have you made sure that your CDs contain a proper "kernel" rpm?

Hi Greg,

Perhaps you are unsupported and they don't want you to be unhappy with something that will not work. The python code from packages.py is listed below. It looks like you need to have a stand alone machine without VMWare. For example, look at this bug http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=112555. Anaconda works fine without VMWare installed when trying to reproduce the error.


# this is a crappy hack, but I don't want bug reports from these people
if (iutil.getArch() == "i386") and (not grpset.hdrlist.has_key("kernel")):
_("You are trying to install on a machine "
"which isn't supported by this release of "
"%s.") %(productName,),
type="custom", custom_icon="error",

id.grpset = grpset

The trouble is, I installed Fedora Core II perfectly using VMWare. I just tested my ISO natively, and the error continues. Any more tips?

The python code (If I'm not mistaken) states that if I'm running i386 and there is no kernel for it, then displays the error. Is this right? If it is, what am I doing wrong here?
