Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19229
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:22 EDT
mkkickstart failed if "LABEL" is in the /etc/fstab.
LABEL is new feature in RH7, but it still does not support my old mkkickstart.
mkkickstart version mkkickstart-2.3-1
hmmm ... mkkickstart didn't crash for my quick trivial check using an fstab
w/labels, could you attach your fstab ...?
(in fact, mkkickstart ommitted partition information from it's output entirely,
so using that file would force me to manually configure disk partitions in the
kickstart install itself ...)
thanks for your report!
This is my fstab (created by RH install CD)
LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
and a part of the ks.cfg.
part swap --size 128
and output of fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 64 heads, 32 sectors, 8678 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 17 17392 83 Linux

/dev/sda6 8551 8678 131056 82 Linux swap
I thought the mkkickstart does not understand the "LABEL" part,
so it CAN NOT add the information. (except swap)
According to your explanation, the new mkkickstart omitted the
partition info from the output.
If so, what I thought bug is not a bug, but a spec.
I hope you will update the mkkickstart online manual to add
all those changes.
