Yep, I added a "repo" line for it in my kickstart file. The console message shows that it looked at the repo but "ignored" it because it considered it to be a duplicate. My install repo and the updates repo certainly aren't the same, but something makes the install think it is.

Is this a local repo? Have you run createpo -d tagainst the repo to make sure that the metadata reflects the content?


I mounted my updates repository (rsynced from a mirror, btw) and ran 'createrepo' on it, and an install still ignores it. I have a machine sharing the repo via http, and my repo line in my kickstart file looks like:

repo --name="updates" --baseurl="http://name.of.machine/fc10_patches/i386 "

My install source is a locally-shared (via NFS) copy of an "Everything" repository that I rsynced (I rsynced the "Packages" and "repodata" directories) from one of the mirrors. I wanted the "Everything" because it's got packages that I need that aren't part of the install DVD.

I'd like to have my kickstart installs already updated via an updates repository. This worked fine with F8 kickstart installs.
