Description A.J. Werkman 2012-06-22 05:35:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora installation does not accept kickstart file written on DVD

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a Fedora 17 DVD with a kickstart file wirtten on it
2. Boot and direct the installation program to use the kickstart file on the DVD
3. Endup in a dracut debug shell
Actual results:
Installation ends up in a dracut debug shell saying it cannot do initqueue

Expected results:
Read the kickstart file and according to this onfo do the installation.

Additional info:
I use the following grub.conf:

title Local disk
	root (hd0)
	chainloader +1
title Fedora 17
	root (cd)
	kernel /images/pxeboot/vmlinuz nomodeset ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg root=live:CDLABEL=CFL17
	initrd /images/pxeboot/initrd.img
title Destructieve installation Fedora 17
	root (cd)
	kernel /images/pxeboot/vmlinuz nomodeset ks=cdrom:/cfl.cfg root=live:CDLABEL=CFL17
	initrd /images/pxeboot/initrd.img
title Test Fedora 17
	root (cd)
	kernel /images/pxeboot/vmlinuz nomodeset root=live:CDLABEL=CFL17
	initrd /images/pxeboot/initrd.img

The last option (without kickstart directive) can succesfully install Fedora, so I rule out DVD composing errors.

Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report.

Created attachment 593801 [details]
Dracut screen

At the moment I end up in a dracut debug shell there is no /tmp/anaconda.log (yet). I attach a photo of the screen.

This seems like it might be a duplicate of bug 828589.

Does it work if you do 'ks=cdrom:/dev/cdrom:/ks.cfg' instead?
Comment 4 A.J. Werkman 2012-06-23 02:48:52 EDT
Yes the notation of comment 3 works.
