Re: File Conflicts error in FC5



Sorry people I didn't edit the comps.xml file properly. Now after editing it properly for my list of packages I am now done with my customisation and I have also installed my customised OS in my machine but still I have som,e questions:

1. I don't see the installer probing for Video Cards and Monitor. What could be the reason ?

2. The Graphical Installation didn't start. Don't know why

3. How can I skip some steps during installation (like the selection of languages) so that by default I can go and continue the installation instead of just pressing a Enter key during that stage.

4. What should I do if I need to run my cutom script during some stage of the installation like, during the Post Install as I need to change the Fedora Core in the /etc/fedora-release. So what can I do ?

Please guide me ...

Thanking you,
MAK

Hello All,

I'm trying to build my own customised OS from FC5 which will be of just a single CD.

I have completed almost all the process but now met with the FILE CONFLICTS error.

The installation is very proper and even during the checking of the package dependencies I don't have any problem. The file system formatting is also proper and I could also delete and reformat a partition. But once the installer gets ready to start the installation of various packages I get the the following error:

Installation couldn't continue because of the the following reasons : file conflicts

I have edited the comps.xml file accordingly and have also completed the necessary things as given in the Fedora site perfectly. I have gone wrong somewhere but couldn't traceout where exactly I went wrong.

If anyone have previuosly completed this task previously kindly please help me so that I can build my own distribution as once this is complete I can proudly say that I also have a new distribution.


Waiting for your generous response,
M. Arunkumar @ MAK

Do you use your local yum repo or directly from Intenet repo ?
For local repo, tell us how do you check package dependencies.

I do also my customized one-cd based on FC5/FC6 no problem.

--- Begin Message --- Can anybody point me to the code that is renaming the ifcfg-<device> files I am creating in the post install part of kickstart. They end up as ifcfg<device>.bak and get replaced by DHCP entries. As we run our servers with bonded interfaces I need to get these device to come up as slaves to the bond device which has a static address.

I know this happens after the %post section has run and I am fairly sure it happens after the reboot and once the rc.sysinit hhas run for the first time. I do not have firstboot installed or any of the system-config-* packages so I have eliminated them from the path. I am fairly sure it is not anaconda itself that is doing this, but cannot for the life of me see where it could be happening.

I am running a slightly extended FC6 install with minimal packages.
