anaconda does not use kickstart file through nfs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
Doing PXE/kickstart install. ks file is on nfs server. Anaconda logs indicate:
file location: nfs://saga:/export/data1/ks/rawhide-desktop.cfg
setting up kickstart
but then it is prompting me for language, keyboard, install location, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The correct syntax here is ks=nfs:saga:/export/data1/ks/rawhide-desktop.cfg.
If it's failing to download the kickstart file, you should at least be getting
the dialog box prompting you to enter a new location. Are you not getting that
Sorry, my bad. Somehow the rawhide-desktop.cfg was actually a directory and not
a file on my server and I didn't notice until I poked around further.
nfs found it, but since it didn't contain anything nothing happened. http
returns an error so it prompted for a new file location (which is what spurred
me to check further).
