Kickstart rescue command options not honored (anaconda goes interactive).
Last modified: 2017-08-27 13:16:13 EDT
When specifying kickstart rescue command, installer goes interactive and asks how to proceed (same as when inst.rescue boot option is used). It should just mount the /mnt/sysimage based on rescue command options (--nomount, --romount) and run the shell on tty, which would allow eg for automatic repairs/checks of system using kickstart %pre or %post scripts.
Is there a chance this will get to F27?
FYI, I've cherry-picked the patches from the pull request on top of anaconda-26.21.10-1 and tested them. I did not test 'inst.rescue', only KS rescue.
Both 'rescue' and 'rescue --nomount' work as expected, thanks!
Yes, this will be included in F27.
Could you, please, cherry-pick to rhel7-branch also? :)
