Description Axel Thimm 2006-02-24 15:49:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Previous releases of anaconda supported ignoreing given block devices (this is
useful when for instance the device in question is labeld with gpt)

FC5t3 does not support this syntax anymore.

Please attach your kickstart file to this bug report.

Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2006-02-24 18:59:24 UTC
Here it is. Some entries like @distarch@ and @host@ get replaced with the
system's parameters. I dropped a couple of entries like rootpw and %packages/%post.

Please try with rawhide tomorrow.  Should be fixed.

Comment 4 Axel Thimm 2006-02-24 23:31:49 UTC
Thanks Chris!

Currently rawhide doesn't install for me, at least not via pxe. I get

> Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
> Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
> ...

That's a different bug, but I cannot do any rawhide anaconda testing due to it.
Maybe you could look into this as well?

Comment 5 Axel Thimm 2006-02-25 11:53:22 UTC
Today's rawhide installs via pxe and the ignoredisk directive works, thanks!
