kickstart install 7.3 & %packages - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have inherited a network including several linux boxes of verying versions etc and wish to standardise the configuration by rebuilding them to redhat 7.3 (sonme of the software the users use for thweir CAD stuff doesn't run > 7.3!) I have a kickstart server working but I want to tweak the packages on an install - I've identified a 7.3 redhat box currently in use and looked at the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file, lifted the packages section out of it and used it in the ks.cfg file I'm using/testing... but I get a debug/crash/wotsuit screen when I try and use it ...

    Default kickstart install 7.3 & %packages

    I have inherited a network including several linux boxes of verying
    versions etc and wish to standardise the configuration by rebuilding
    them to redhat 7.3 (sonme of the software the users use for thweir CAD
    stuff doesn't run > 7.3!)
    I have a kickstart server working but I want to tweak the packages on
    an install - I've identified a 7.3 redhat box currently in use and
    looked at the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file, lifted the packages section
    out of it and used it in the ks.cfg file I'm using/testing... but I
    get a debug/crash/wotsuit screen when I try and use it in anger!

    Is there any way I can find what packages are installed on the
    "existing" box so I can create a definitive pacjkcages list for the
    ks.cfg for the "rebuilt" boxes - my predecessor left absolutely no
    doentation whatsoever...

    You don't need any, you can ask the rpm db:

    $ rpm -qa

    $ man rpm

    inconvenience, but I get tons of SPAM
