system-config-kickstart errors



I'm not sure if this is an anaconda or a system-config-kickstart error.

I installed fc7t2 from a kickstart file containing the following:

%packages
@admin-tools
@base
@base-x
@core
@editors
@java
@printing
@text-internet
comps-extras
cracklib-dicts
gnome-mime-data
kernel-headers
nash
rmt
tzdata
xkeyboard-config


After installation, the saved anaconda-ks.cfg contained a bunch of extra packages to
be removed such as:
-iprutils
-yaboot
-ppc64-utils
-elilo
-s390utils
-vixie-cron
-bc
-lsof
-ksh

If I run "system-config-kickstart anaconda-ks.cfg" it fails on each of the unknown
packages (e.g., yaboot is below):
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/system-config-kickstart", line 81, in <module>
    kickstartGui.kickstartGui(file)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/kickstartGui.py", line 180, in __init__
    self.applyKickstart()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/kickstartGui.py", line 338, in
applyKickstart
    self.packages_class.applyKickstart()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/packages.py", line 255, in applyKickstart
    pkgs = self.y.pkgSack.returnNewestByName(pkg)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/packageSack.py", line 318, in
returnNewestByName
    return bestofeach.returnNewestByName(name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/packageSack.py", line 640, in
returnNewestByName
    raise PackageSackError, 'No Package Matching  %s' % name
PackageSackError: No Package Matching  yaboot


If I delete the lines causing errors the utility will start. However, writing back a
new ks.cfg still appends the offending packages.
