Description Lukas Zapletal 2022-01-17 11:43:31 UTC
RHEL 9 Beta currently cannot be installed with default templates due to deprecation of ks= argument. It must be prefixed with inst.ks= and Anaconda in RHEL9 Beta will fail, thus provisioning is not possible.

I propose to backport it into 6.10 so customers can try out RHEL 9 Beta without any extra effort.

Instead of backporting both patches which aim to change all places (iPXE, PXEGrub etc) I propose just to do a small change of changing ks to inst.ks for supported workflows (PXELinux, Grub2). I can do a small MR on request.

Small effort, low risk.

Comment 1 Lukas Zapletal 2022-01-17 11:49:51 UTC
Also this package must be removed from the kickstart: redhat-lsb-core.
