custom rpm fails in kickstart, works normally

I built a custom rpm that simply installs a bourne shell script then runs the script in the post of the rpm install. If I install the rpm on a running system, it works great. The shell runs properly at the end of the rpm installation.

However, if I install the rpm using kickstart, the shell script does get installed but fails while running the script. I first do a PLATFORM=`/bin/uname` . This is what fails with a "/bin/uname: no such file or directory" error during the post rpm installation.

So I suspect something wrong with pathing due to being in the kickstart environment? Any tips?
