RFE - retain copies of a Driver Disk images in /tmp/
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:25:17 EST
Presently Anaconda emits a record of that it initially installs, and the ks.cfg
which it used.
It would be useful to extend this a tiny bit, to help an admin who is careful to
snap a backup post install of the fresh machine, at minimal space cost, by
having anaconda dump a copy of each end user provided install time dd image to
/tmp/ or such during just before the post process in an install
People seem to lose driver disks, and this would keep the images needed for
recovery around for a person taking that 'careful admin' initial post-install
It then becomes possible to recover more effectively with rescue image.
yeah, probably don't want /tmp due to tmpwatch removing them after a short
while. Stuffing them in /root doesn't seem like a horrible idea.
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
