Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55534
Installer %post section doesn't have the last word
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:58 EDT
In the %post section, I can copy known good Xconfig files to /etc/X11, and
they would work, except that X configuration by the installer takes place
_AFTER_ the installation process. This seems to be a new "feature". Is it
possible to do all things the installer needs to do BEFORE the %post
section, so that in future version of Red Hat Linux %post will truely live
up to it's name? This would be useful so that a script run in the %post
section, regardless of what runlevel was configured, or automatic X
configuration did or didn't happen, will truely have the last word _after_
%post should always have the last word...this is strange. Can you attach your
kickstart file so we can try to duplicate this?

Sorry... I was gone for two weeks. Attached please find my ks.cfg kickstart
file. I'm using ftp as an installation method; I'm not sure if the results
would be different with NFS or cdrom.

This bug also screws the RedHat RHCE Examinations !
I am an RHCEX in UK.
This bug reported to LJ in UK - who did not believe it I thnk !
Work-around is to create a 'one-shot' rc5.d script to copy required XF86 files
on first reboot.
Also related - many 'xconfig' options do not work in kickstart.cfg files.
%post should now really have the last word as its done right before the
