Description Máirín Duffy 2007-08-08 17:01:17 EDT
Description of problem:

We used to let you use %include under advanced options in kickstart profiles to
include arbitrary files into your kickstart command section. It looks like this
functionality may have disappeared post 410 pre 420. 

A workaround for this currently is to type out the %include statement in the
text areas in the System Details > Partitioning tab or the Software > Package
Groups tabs of the kickstart profile in question.

Just tested the addition of:

%include /path/to/file in the Advanced Options page under Custom options.  Works fine.
Comment 3 Steve Salevan 2009-04-14 17:41:39 EDT
I was able to add in an %include directive in the custom options field and verified its presence in the produced kickstart file.  Moving to VERIFIED, tested on 530-re20090413.0.
