Description dbelliz 1999-12-27 22:48:06 UTC
Why is it I am not able to access previouly mounted file systems (local and nfs) during the %post phase of a kick start installation? The 2nd virtual terminal's bash prompt (alt + F2) has access to these file systems during the entire install. Any reference to /mnt/source and /mnt/sysimage fail during the %post phase but work great in the 2nd virtual terminal. What is required for me to access these file systems?
Comment 1 Riley H Williams 1999-12-28 18:39:59 UTC
Does the %post phase have the same root directory or has a chroot occurred?
Comment 3 dbelliz 1999-12-28 19:13:59 UTC
If a chroot has occurred It has happened unbeknownst to me. Here is my ks.cfg
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2000-01-27 22:08:59 UTC
%post happens in a chrooted environment, chroot /mnt/sysimage I believe. Your system is now found at /. If you need a non-chrooted environment for %post (but be careful!), use %post --nochroot

Thank You, My instructor Dax has also set me straight on this. It would be nice if this was in the docs though.
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2000-02-10 02:59:59 UTC
The kickstart process will actually be documented quite well in the next release, so look forward to that.
