Re: replacing kernel


I am putting the kickstart file in the tmp directory inside the ramdisk.
This is for IBM iseries(ppc) and the ramdisk image is attached to the
kernel.  The problem occurs even when  I am not trying the kickstart
install, but a normal install with my CD.   So the error occurs without the
kickstart file coming into the picture at all.

Taking your advice on looking up the archives.....

thanks in advance

Where did you put the ks.cfg file exactly?  What do you have in that
file?  If you are replacing the kernel, you will most likely have to run
buildinstall et al.  Check the archives on this list and the archives on
