FEAT: request for configured kickstart file which includes the min. hts package set
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:55:07 EDT
Description of problem:
$summary, I haven't verified, but I want to say some time back; kickstart was
made smart enough that if you used it and it couldn't figure out the answer it
would prompt the user and then continue back into the the kickstart. So I
believe this would provide a reasonable starting point for people. Though, I'm
not certain what happens when you say try to install audio from kickstart on a
zSeries or other platform that doesn't have that package. Missing packages used
to cause problems, not certain if it'd get over it so long as it doesn't cause a
package dependency problem?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Kickstart files for dom0 and domU
I've just attached my dom0 and domU kickstart files along with the scripts and directions needed to do a nearly fully automated install of RHEL5.3 dom0 and domU with HTS.
thanks very much Gary. think we can modify your ks files a bit to cover other platforms. :)
Rob, could we discuss how to package these ks files ? If to build another rpm, where to host them ? In the svn repo ?
Verified both v7-1.0-14.el5 and v7-1.0-14.el4 included following kickstart files:
Release note added. If any revisions are required, please set the
"requires_release_notes" flag to "?" and edit the "Release Notes" field accordingly.
All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The need for speeding up the Hardware Certification process.
Spend much time on OS installation.
Provide pre-configured kickstart files to speed up or to automate the OS installation.
The OS installation will no longer consume much time by utilizing those pre-configured kickstart files.
