torque.setup fails for a lot of people because of reverse resolution
complexities.  It is nowhere near reliable enough to be part of the %post.

It does 3 things.  The first is setting up managers, this is the unreliable
(but most important) part.  The second is to create a default queue that is
only useful for only the most simple environments.  The third is a few guesses
at some common configs.  None of this is enough.  The reality is that you need
to sit down and configure torque after installing it.
