RE: When was "include" directive introduced?



Thank you Christian! You confirmed my suspicions!

I was wondering if just including the following hack into
usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py could solve the "%include" issue for
RHEL21.

                        scriptInterp = arg

+           elif args and args[0] == "%include":
+               if len(args) < 2:
+                   raise RuntimeError, "Invalid %include line"
+               else:
+                   # read in the included file and set our where
appropriately
+                   where = self.readKickstart(id, args[1], where =
where)

            elif args and args[0] == "%packages":

Hi Roman,

RHEL 2.1 (based on RH 7.3) doesn't support %include. Only RHEL 3 and 4
support it. I am guessing then that RH8 and newer also support it. I
have
to support RHEL 2.1, 3, and 4, and thus I unfortunately can't take
%include
for granted. My RHEL 2.1 KS files are a different than the rest. I
generate
them on-the-fly via a CGI script, so its not a big deal _now_, but it
used
to be a pain to always make exceptions for RHEL 2.1, where just nothing
is
standard and half the stuff you need missing.

Cheers,

-Christian

Hi ALL,


I'm working on an ESX server from VMware which uses anaconda +
Kickstart.
However it's anaconda version is quite archaic - I can't figure out the
version of anaconda. It has also been heavily hacked by folks from
VMware.
They say it is based on RH7.2  I mounted netstg1.img and did a grep on
"include" in "usr/lib/anaconda" but that didn't turn up any good
positives...
Maybe it just isn't there?


My question is: How long ago was "%include" directive introduced? Should
I
take it for granted?


Thanks much,
