Description of problem:
I'm experiencing the same problem described here
whereas I have 'keyboard us' in my kickstart config yet am prompted to
pick a keyboard type during the install. 

This only happens on serial installs, text and graphical both go hands

As you might imagine this is a real annoyance when loading multiple
headless nodes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. kickstart with the following options 
append ksdevice=eth0 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,19200 load_ramdisk=1
initrd=initrd-core3.img network
2. watch for the 'What type of keyboard do you have?' question
3. become annoyed :)

Actual Results:  Prompts for keyboard, upon selecting one it continues
the install hands free as it should.

Expected Results:  barring any configuration errors, pxe boot to post
install should be hands free.

Does it work if you add 'serial' to your kernel boot params?
Comment 2 Matthew Kent 2004-11-25 10:15:23 EST
