Hi all,

I'm testing new "minimal" kickstarts files for CentOS6 and CentOS7. The CentOS6 kickstart works fine, but i've a dependency problem with the CentOS7 equivalent.

In my kickstarts, i use network install with following repos/packages (for the repo, the only change is version number 6 <-> 7):

url --url="http://mirror.in2p3.fr/ftp/linux/CentOS/7/os/x86_64/"
repo --name="Puppet dependencies" --baseurl=http://yum.puppetlabs.com/el/7/dependencies/x86_64/
repo --name="Puppet" --baseurl=http://yum.puppetlabs.com/el/7/products/x86_64/



# We use puppet from puppetlabs repo

It works great for CentOS 6, the vm is installed with puppet, but on CentOS7 anaconda complains that there is a dependency problem:
puppet-3.7.1-1.el7.noarch requires ruby-augeas
puppet-3.7.1-1.el7.noarch requires ruby-shadow

Puppet package is in "puppet" repo and "missing" dependencies packages are provided by the "puppet dependencies" repo.

The inter-repo dependencies are correctly resolved in CentOS 6 anaconda but it seems that CentOS 7 anaconda fails to resolve inter-repo dependencies. I expected to have the same behavior as CentOS 6 anaconda installer.

Someone else hit this problem ?

Have a nice day.
