Description Mark McLoughlin 2006-07-03 10:14:48 EDT
Passing ks=hd:/dev/xvda:/ks.cfg to anaconda wasn't working and it took me a
while to figure out what was going on. All I was seeing was:

15:13:47 INFO    : getFileFromBlockDevice(/dev/xvda, /ks.cfg)
15:13:48 DEBUG   : going to set language to en_US.UTF-8

Attaching a patch to print an error if devMakeInode() fails, so that I see:

15:13:47 INFO    : getFileFromBlockDevice(/dev/xvda, /ks.cfg)
15:13:47 ERROR   : failed to make device node for /dev//dev/xvda
15:13:48 DEBUG   : going to set language to en_US.UTF-8

And have some hope of realising what I'm doing wrong :-)
