I have been installing Fedora using kickstart on multiple machines since FC11. It's always generally worked OK, but FC15 kickstart is proving unusually problematic.
The main issue I'm having at the moment is that my postinstall script is set up to install rpms, and it's failing. I have to install them at post-install stage because the 'Everything' repo is not available at install time.
I enabled logging on my postinstall script and I get these messages when trying to install rpms:
rpmdb: __db_meta_setup: /var/lib/rpm/Name: unexpected file type or format
error: cannot open Name index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
I have tried adding 'yum clean all' at the start of the post install script but it makes no difference.
I am also using a kickstart update which I used to resolve errors when partitioning disks: update-706542.img
Any ideas on how to resolve this? As I say it's the first time I've had this problem with kickstart, in a few years.

This was my fault, I was still trying to use the FC14 repo. Shame on me.
