Description Ryan Tilder 2007-03-28 17:14:42 UTC
Description of problem: %include would be much more useful if I didn't have to rely on only items accessable via the local file system Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pykickstart0.43 Simple patch attached to change readKickstart()'s call to open() to use urlgrabber.grabber.urlopen()
Comment 1 Ryan Tilder 2007-03-28 17:14:42 UTC
Created attachment 151136 [details] use urlgrabber.grabber.urlopen() to open %include files
Comment 2 Ryan Tilder 2007-03-28 17:32:35 UTC
Created attachment 151138 [details] use urlgrabber.grabber.urlopen() to open all kickstart config files so that %include URLs can happen Slightly updated patch. anaconda-188.8.131.52/kickstart.py doesn't catch IOError when calling readKickstart(), making for not so pretty exception and exit when a %include file is missing. This way the interface can handle it as gracefully as possible.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-03-30 20:00:08 UTC
This will be in the next build of pykickstart in rawhide, which means that it will eventually be in the next release of RHEL. If you'd like this feature included in an update to RHEL5, please go through your support representative who will raise the issue through the appropriate channels. Thanks for the feature request. As for handling IOError, I'd prefer anaconda handle that correctly instead of doing anything in pykickstart, so I've beefed up the error handling there instead.

is there any other way to vote for this extension? it's simple clear patch and would be very useful?
