Re: [Pulp-list] unable to use pulp centos repos for vm installation



HI Steven,

I actually asked on IRC today and got a reply.

It's seems to be a bug with anaconda on Centos 6.4, it doesn't like the compressed groups.xml.

The guy who replied to my question created an issue on bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=950036

on my todo list to do installs from a pulp repo but haven't gotten to it
yet.

what pulp version are you using?  there have been a number of repo fixes
in the 2.1 beta series...
