Description Brian Brock 2006-06-28 14:13:29 EDT
A kickstart installation that includes directives for lang and langsupport
ignores th ks.cfg options in favor of prompting the user.

Seen in rawhide-20060628 with anaconda-

The installation begins, boots the kernel grabbed via tftp, and proceeds until
the language configuration section.  I was expecting that section to continue
without prompting for user input.

in ks.cfg I specified:

nfs --server=<server> --dir=<dir>
lang en_US.UTF-8
langsupport --default=en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-06-28 14:22:11 EDT
I expect that the ks.cfg actually isn't being fetched because the kernel isn't
able to load modules right now... 
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2006-06-28 14:37:14 EDT
Note that langsupport doesn't actually do anything anymore - you should see a
warning in your anaconda logs about that.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2006-07-13 14:57:24 EDT
Is this better now that the kernel can load modules again?
Comment 4 Brian Brock 2006-07-20 14:34:20 EDT
langsupport appears fine in recent trees, it's not stopping the installer.
