kickstart redhat 7.0 problem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:13 EDT
I use Kickstart with 64 PC under Redhat 6 / bootp and i don't have a
but with redhat 7 :(
->I make a boot disk :
dd if=bootnet.img od=/dev/fd0 bs=72k
->and i copy ks.cfg generated by mkkickstart under floppy:
mcopy ks.cfg a:
network --bootproto bootp
device ethernet eepro100
part swap --size 503
xconfig --server "Mach64" --monitor "generic monitor"
rootpw --iscrypted $1$pKxVHPvf$vxQEWndqCC3pmEQmzkFIE1
lilo --location mbr
->And when i boot with the disk the system write "no install method
specified for kickstart"
But the file ks.cfg is known by the sytem because it write : "kickstart
file copied to /tmp/ks.cfg".
(i see this message with the virtual cnsole [ctrl] + F3.)
-> Under redhat6 i use bootp : the file ks.cfg is on the server and under
the install kickstart
mount by nfs le file. But with redhat7 the systeme can't mount the file.
I think may be is the bootnet.img is wrong , i don't kwnow. But i hope
and sorry for my bas Englih. :=)
you're trying to use "cdrom" as the method on a bootnet.img disk?
I use a bootnet image because i need network interface(Bootp) for get the ks.cfg
in a central server.
After, i use a cdrom on a local machine.
But with red hat linux 7 you say that you copied ks.cfg to the floppy.
sorry, i think my explain is not good:
My principal use is :
a server with bootp(configuration network of workstation) and a ks.cfg.
when i lauch a reinstall of a workstation with a floppy,(linux=ks) the
workstation get the network configuration with bootp and get ks.cfg on the
server. After, it install the packages with the local cdrom.
this work perfecly with redhat6.
In my past explain i say i copy ks.cfg to floppy, because i try with network and
as it don't work i try with the file direcly on a disk.
