I tried it both with the partitions # out and with partitions active.

It crashes as the GUI is trying to start.

This is what I can see on the screen after the crass
ndleCommand
self.handler.dispatcher(args, lineno)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pykickstart/base.py" line 321 in dispatcher
self.commands[cmd].parse(args[1:])
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pykickstart/commands/method.py", line 1, in parse
(opts, extra) = op.parse_args(args=args)
AttributeError:'NoneType' object has no attribute'parse_args'
install exited abnormally[1/1]

Then is shuts down.

Any ideas. Thanks.
