Description of problem:
kickstart NFS installation stops after having got the IP and name from a
DHCP server and before the HD formatting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Mount a dhcp server
2.Mount a nfs server (the same pc) with cdrom exported (red hat 6.2, 7.1)
3.kickstart install with the first lines that appear in Additinal
Expected Results: To format the HD and auto install linux
network --bootproto dhcp
nfs --server 192.168.1.25 --dir /mnt/cdrom
part / --size 800
part swap --size 128 --grow
What is the error message? Is there an Ooops trace? a Python trace?
Sorry, it's not a bug.
The error occurs when you tell kickstart to install a package and it doesn't
find that package name in the Red Hat Linux CD or Directory. But it tells you
that in the last line of the suppossed "bug".
So I copied all the names from RedHat/base/comps to the ckickstart conf file
and deleted those I didn't need and then the installation ran OK.
Thanks for the insterest.
