Description Matt Swanson 2000-04-06 18:08:09 EDT
There was/is a similar problem w/ 6.1.
My ks.cfg has:
network --static -ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX ...
Last message in A-F3:
* kickstarting through device eth0
A dialog stating: 'bad argument to kickstart network command --static:
unknown option' appears, preventing my automated install from completing.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 2000-04-11 12:43:59 EDT
The problem is that you are not using the correct syntax.  The proper command
for static addressing is "network --bootproto static --ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX ..."
Comment 2 Daniel Roesen 2000-04-14 19:46:59 EDT
The problem is mkkickstart generating wrong "network" hint line (with
"--static"). See Bug #10622
