Re: [virt-tools-list] virt-manager 0.9.0 & --initrd-inject option



i just find out how to go around this issue:

unfortunately you can't split ks URL & kernel options into the two different fields suggested by virt-manager, instead what you should do is to specify everything within the kernel options field including the kickstart file location … pretty wierd from my humble point of view …

thanks anyway


Best Regards,
Salvatore.
