We routinely rebuild systems from a kickstart driven facility we have
built. This uses a Fedora image - in this case fedora 7 Everything
with the updates merged in. We have run into 2 problems with this as
opposed to the original release image.
First the version of yum available in updates currently is
incompatible with the version of anaconda. The problem is that this
version of yum does not create the headers directory and anaconda
assumes it will exist.
To get round this we have reverted to yum-3.2.0-1.fc7.noarch.rpm for
now but will probably try out the development releases of anaconda and
yum next week.
A little more detail:
The directory /tmp/cache/headers is created, but empty.
The directory /tmp/cache/anaconda-base-200707231006/headers was not
created, and it is here that anaconda is looking for the headers. The
first package that it tries to install will throw the error.
Built using pungi-0.3.7-2 with a build system that worked great until
the yum update to 3.2.1-1.
Cross posting to fedora-buildsys-list.
