RE: Kickstart failing for RHEL 3.0 Update3



I used the same ks for u2 and u3. It's also a RH NFS install. (same as you)

Are you sure nothing's different concerning the ks location or naming? My
install CD grabs the ks from an NFS, then NFS installs RH.

RHupdates... Someone else will need to speculate on that.

This is probably reaching, but there could be differences in the syntax of
the kickstart files between versions of RHEL. I found that a kickstart file
built for RHEL 3 would fail with RHEL 2.1. It is hard to imagine that there
would be significant differences between Update 2 and Update 3, but maybe it
would be worth the effort to rebuild your kickstart file with
redhat-config-kickstart.

(A feeble) HTH,

Andrew Robinson
