Re: Kickstart on CD



Few more info. When I'm trying to run it with linux ks=cdrom, like one of the guys sent me in private, it is jumping to the graphic mode, although still not using ks.cfg. Here it comes :

#Generated by Kickstart Configurator

I've built the installation images, but when trying to install with kickstart from CD using "linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg" the installation goes to text and asking for the installation method again. When trying to answer CD-ROM it writes, that RedHat Linux CD could not be found in the drive. Same CD is starting regular installation without any problem.

Hello, guys,
I've got two more questions for now :

1. How can I use ks.cfg , that will reside in the root of first
(bootable) CD?

start the installer with ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg




2. What will be the path to use with rpm -ivh in the %post section to
install packages which reside on /actona directory in the root of CD?

You can't access the CD from the normal %post section. You'll need two seperate %post sections. One before and one after the chroot.

For the exact syntax you can search the list archive for /mnt/sysimage or
%post --nochroot. it's come by a number of times :)
