Description Leonard den Ottolander 2001-08-03 11:35:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
mkkickstart doesn't write --enablemd5 in config file. Although bugreport 18235 says this is solved for RedHat 7.0 in rawhide, mkkickstart from 
RH 7.1 does *not* write --enablemd5 on a system with md5 encrypted passwords. Strange.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkkickstart > /etc/ks.cfg on a md5 passwords enabled system

Actual Results:  --enablemd5 flag is not written in the kickstart config file

Expected Results:  --enablemd5 flag written in the kickstart config file on systems with md5 encrypted passwords.

So the use of mkkickstart is discouraged. But ksconfig only works under X. Is 
there a command line tool to create ks.cfg files?

the next version of red hat linux will create a kickstart config file after
every install.  Use that as the framework with a text editor to customize
