Summary0009611: Kickstart GUI Configurator always displays an error for "Package Selection"
DescriptionWhen starting the GUI version of Kickstart (via system-config-kickstart), the "Package Selection" always shows "Package selection is disabled due to problems downloading package information".

Possible solution:
Based on the output of "yum repolist enabled"
- base/7/x86_64
- extras/7/x86_64
- updates/7/x86_64

I've updated /usr/share/system-config-kickstart/

156: # If we're on a release, we want to try the base repo first. Otherwise,
157: # try development. If neither of those works, we have a problem.
158: if "fedora" in map(lambda repo:, self.repos.listEnabled()):
159: repoorder = ["fedora", "rawhide", "development"]
160: else:
161: repoorder = ["rawhide", "development", "fedora"]

to ("base" is added):
161: repoorder = ["rawhide", "development", "fedora", "base"]

Restart Kickstart and the Package selections works as expected.
