Description Matthew Davis 2006-10-30 11:59:40 EST
Description of problem:

Using the following %pre script example, weird things happen with the kickstart.

- start -
cat > /tmp/a <<EOF
- end -

With the above script included in a kickstart profile as a %pre script,  The
kickstart file looks something like this:

%packages --resolvedeps

@ Base

cat > /tmp/a < /tmp/ssl-key-1 <<'EOF'
        Version: 3 (0x2)
        Serial Number: 0 (0x0)
        Signature Algorithm: sha1WithRSAEncryption
# ssl-key1
cat /tmp/ssl-key-* > /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT
perl -npe 's/RHNS-CA-CERT/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT/g' -i /etc/sysconfig/rhn/*

And there is no %post section.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
ever time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create kickstart profile
2. Create a %pre using hte script mentioned above
Actual results:
Weirdness, and no %post section

Expected results:
See seperate %post & %pre sections

Additional info:
A work-around is to add a space between << & EOF so the line would be

cat > /tmp/a << EOF

I've just tried this on rhns-5.1.0-9 and both the %pre and %post scripts are
shown as expected. So I assume that with the numerous changes to the kickstart
generation code, this problem got resolved.

As such, moving to ON_QA.

Taking from Mike's plate and reassigning to myself for possible kickbacks.

On the latest ISO build, 510-15, including the test script as a %pre script does
not cause the funky behavior originally reported.  Thus, it looks like this bug
is now VERIFIED.

Looks good on Stage Satellite, moving to RELEASE_PENDING.

UI Enhancements for 5.1 Sat GA so Closed for Current Release.
