Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your help.

Same result here after installing the above createrepo RPM.

"Unable to read group information from repositories. This
is a problem with the generation of your install tree."

The dialog box says simply "Reboot." At the next box, I get:

| You have specified that the group 'virtualization' should |
| be installed. This group does not exist. Would you like to |
| continue or abort your installation?

If I say continue, the install seems to proceed okay.

At boot time, however, the system hangs at Mounting Other Filesystems.

I suspect that the initial install was not clean and so I am chasing
that down before moving on to the hung CentOS 5 boot.

Thanks.

-D

Ok this sounds more like the kickstart you are using is not pointing
to the correct repo.
If you loaded centos in via a profile.. you should be able to look at it like:

cobbler profile report --name=centos-5.1-server-i386

or some such thing.. the default kickstart is then:

# cobbler profile report --name=rhel-5.1-server-i386
profile : rhel-5.1-server-i386
distro : rhel-5.1-server-i386
kickstart : /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts/rhel5/rhel5-hardware-default.cfg
kernel options : {}
ks metadata : {}
virt file size : 32
virt ram : 512
virt type : auto
virt path :
virt bridge : xenbr0
virt cpus : 1
repos : []
dhcp tag : default
server : <<inherit>>

# cobbler system report --name=bakeneko_smoogespace_com
system : bakeneko_smoogespace_com
profile : rhel-5.1-server-i386
kernel options : {}
ks metadata : {}
netboot enabled? : True
kickstart : /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts/rhel5/rhel5-hardware-xendom0.cfg
virt type : <<inherit>>
virt path : <<inherit>>
server : <<inherit>>
interface : intf0
mac address : 00:19:B9:BB:8F:9E
ip address : 192.168.2.1
hostname : bakeneko.smoogespace.com
gateway : 192.168.2.255
subnet : 255.255.255.0
virt bridge :
dhcp tag : net2

Here I am using kickstarts that have rhel5 items in them. My guess is
that you might be trying one with CentOS which is looking for other
names.

Thats usually a network issue where its trying to get IPs that don't exist.

This looks okay to me:

[root@lncbuild repodata]# cobbler profile report --name centos5servers
profile : centos5servers
distro : centos5-i386
kickstart : /var/www/html/kickstart/cfgs/ks-centos-5.cfg
kernel options : {}
ks metadata : {}
virt file size : 5
virt ram : 512
virt type : auto
virt path :
virt bridge : xenbr0
virt cpus : 1
repos : []
dhcp tag : default
server : <<inherit>>

[root@lncbuild repodata]# cat /var/www/html/kickstart/cfgs/ks-centos-5.cfg
# Kickstart file generated by Demetri

install
url --url http://lncbuild.lnc.rnmd.net/cobbler/repo_mirror/centos5-i386/
.
.
.

And the distro:

[root@lncbuild repodata]# cobbler distro report --name centos5-i386
distro : centos5-i386
kernel :
/var/www/cobbler/repo_mirror/centos5-i386/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
initrd :
/var/www/cobbler/repo_mirror/centos5-i386/images/pxeboot/initrd.img
kernel options : {}
architecture : x86
ks metadata : {}
breed : redhat

The last few lines of the httpd show anaconda pulling files just
generated by createrepo (post-rsync).
