Re: include XEN kernel & tools in CentOS 5.1 kickstart?

	Well, the easiest part would be to create a custom install CD with just
the packages you need ;-) and then, rerun createrepo to update the
packages list and do what Mr Dehaan said, listing individual packages at
%packages instead of the "Virtualization" group

	If you already have them, you can always put a %post with an rpm -Uvh
package1.rpm package2.rpm, etc if you don't want to do the createrepo
stuff

	For me, that installs Xen kernel and utils as default for system where
it is installed.

Hi all

I'm busy creating a custom CentOS installation CD to be used with cPanel, which basically needs a minimum installation of Linux, but I would also like to use Xen for VPS' on the server, and thought I could do both at the same time - automatically install my server to my needs, and install Xen (without needing to run "yum install xen kernel-xen virt-manager" every time).

So, my question is. How would I add those RPM's to the custom CentOS CD, and install them, and then setup grub.conf to use the Xen kernel upon reboot as well?

I have, but since I only have the 1st CD, it's not on the CD, and I don't want to download all the other CD's to see on which CD it is. It comes to a point where it's asking for the 2nd CD.

I need a bare minimal install for cPanel, so I didn't even include any packages

Well, I only started playing with kickstart yesterday And my brain hurts by now, but I'm learning a lot :)


How does it work? Do I copy all the rpm's I want to use to the CentOS folder, and then run createrepo on that folder?
