1.181.1.  RHBA-2009:1387: bug fix update

An updated pykickstart package that fixes two bugs is now available.
The pykickstart package is a python library used to manipulate kickstart files.
This updated package addresses the following bugs:
  • pykickstart ignored special characters when parsing arguments, and therefore omitted them when passing the arguments to the authconfig method. This meant that the system would not kickstart as specified. pykickstart now handles special characters, so arguments are passed as intended. Any further issues will be due to incorrect syntax. (BZ#241657)
  • pykickstart lacked RAID10 support, so attempting to kickstart with RAID10 software resulted in a "RAID Partition defined without RAID level" error message and a failure to boot. RAID10 support has been added, and the kickstart now works as expected. (BZ#508053)
Users of pykickstart are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these issues.
