Default Where is Kickstart Configurator in RHEL 5.3?

Hello,
I'm reading all over the redhat website about how I can use Kickstart Configurator in RHEL by running /usr/sbin/system-config-kickstart. or choosing it from the menus in the GUI.

Well, it's not anywhere on the systems of RHEL 5.3 that I've been installing. I've tried installing from the DVD again with ALL packages and options and still I can't find this file.

Any ideas?

Best Regards

Hi Falko,
this is what is so puzzling

[root@localhost /]# updatedb
[root@localhost /]# locate system-config-kickstart
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/16x16/apps/system-config-kickstart.png
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/24x24/apps/system-config-kickstart.png
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/32x32/apps/system-config-kickstart.png
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/36x36/apps/system-config-kickstart.png
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/48x48/apps/system-config-kickstart.png
[root@localhost /]#

This is on the 32bit and 64bit versions of 5.3. I install from CD and from pxe, i've even tried the cd setup with ALL packages.

Cheers

[root@localhost /]# yum whatprovides "*/system-config-kickstart"
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
No Matches found


not sure what RHN is, but I'm pretty sure I can register with it if I need to.

It is the redhat network, since you are not registered you can not get updates, so yum will not provide you with correct infomation.

Is your copy of RHEL legal ?

The command is found in the rpm package system-config-kickstart

as far as I know. I work for a very very large computer company that I'm sure bought RHEL.

They tell me we have a support contract, maybe I'll call them and see if they know where the configurator went.

Cheers

You say you installed all the packages on the DVD what is the output of the command

Code:
rpm -ql system-config-kickstart

[root@localhost /]# rpm -ql system-config-kickstart
package system-config-kickstart is not installed
[root@localhost /]#


So I booted into the GUI and selected add/remove software from the application menu.
In the package manager, under list and I select All packages. Every package is checked in the box and has a green check next to it. there are no packages in that list than are not checked. That is why assumed I had everything installed.
Is there another way to make sure everything is installed?

Cheers
