Description John Hodrien 2009-01-23 10:31:56 EST
Description of problem:

Setting kernel options or post kernel options for a kickstart doesn't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set kernel and post kernel options at 
2.  Click update kickstart
Actual results:

Both options are blanked out, and are not obviously stored and used anywhere.

Expected results:

Options should still be visible in the webui, and subsequent installs using that kickstart profile should include those parameters.

Additional info:

More info definitely required.  I was trying "vnc vncpassword=foo" as the post kernel options, but it won't let you have a single word as an option, it was name=value.

Is this just the wrong place to be doing it?

I think this was resolved by a recent commit. Assigning to Partha for review.

Spacewalk 0.6 released
Comment 5 Michael Rudel 2009-10-15 16:37:58 EDT
this does not appear to be fixed in 0.6

if you specify options such as:

nostorage latefcload 

in the 'kernel options' portion of the kickstart profile, it actually passes them to the install kernel like this:

nostorage= latefcload=
