lang and langsupport ignored in kickstart configuration
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
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-126.96.36.199-1
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>
langsupport --default=en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
I expect that the ks.cfg actually isn't being fetched because the kernel isn't
able to load modules right now...
Note that langsupport doesn't actually do anything anymore - you should see a
warning in your anaconda logs about that.
Is this better now that the kernel can load modules again?
langsupport appears fine in recent trees, it's not stopping the installer.
