Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441837
pykickstart - option --bootproto: invalid choice: 'query' (choose from 'dhcp', 'bootp', 'static')
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:24:47 EDT
Description of problem:
In testing bug#401531 ... it appears that the new "network --bootproto=query"
syntax is not recognized as valid by pykickstart.
The installation will stop and prompt to reboot in stage#2 as seen below:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build iso file with a kickstart on the iso that contains:
2. Boot iso image with: linux ks=cdrom
3. Answer any loader questions to proceed to stage#2
pykickstart doesn't like kickstart syntax
Dialog stating ...
option --bootproto: invalid choice: 'query' (choose from 'dhcp', 'bootp', 'static')
pykickstart should be happy
This blocks end-2-end verification of bug#401531.
While this is late in the cycle, if we desire to support the hotfix pushed out
against 5.1 (officially fixed in #401531), I think we'll need to take this in.
