Description Lawrence Lim 2005-01-21 21:03:36 UTC
Description of problem:
The --autoscreenshot option in the anaconda ks.cfg is a great option
to capture screenshots automatically during anaconda install without
any human interaction. However, at the moment, the --autoscreenshot
option is not able to capture all the screenshots in anaconda during
installation. Some pages such as the Disk Partitioning page is skipped. 

Is it possible to enhance the --autoscreenshot option so that all the
anaconda screenshots can be captured?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert "autostep --autoscreenshot" into the anaconda kickstart file
Actual results:
At the moment, it captures 9 screenshots.

Expected results:
Capture all the screenshots for anaconda.

Comment 6 Jon Stanley 2008-05-10 05:30:53 UTC
Cab this proceed, or has this already been integrated?

Jeremy did some work on dogtail/anaconda integration; bouncing NEEDINFO over to

Jeremy: do you know what the status of this is?

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-28 18:55:22 UTC
There's a separate bug tracking dogtail integration.  We're not going to extend
--autoscreenshot itself
