Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 260741
anaconda-ks.cfg script should be created earlier during install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:47 EST
Description of problem:
I had a manual install fail on a server due to a single package not being found
on the disk. I couldn't get the installer past the problem and my only real
option was to reboot and try again.
No problem, I'll just take the kickstart file, remove the offending package, and
reinstall using anaconda-ks.cfg to automate it.
I switched to VT 2 and figured I'd copy the /mnt/sysimage/root/anaconda-ks.cfg
file over to floppy. The file isn't there.
I guess this file doesn't get created until the install completes. Wouldn't it
make more sense for the file to get generated after the partitions are formatted
and mounted to /mnt/sysimage?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5 x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Kick off a CD based manual install
2. After the package installation begins, switch to VT 2
3. Check /mnt/sysimage/root/ for the anaconda-ks.cfg file
The file isn't there until after package installation
The file would be there after the partitions were formatted and mounted so that
you could restart the install using kickstart if a fatal installation error
occurred during the package process.
Not a biggy, it just seems out of order.
