Description Gerald Teschl 2001-11-11 21:08:17 UTC
Druing ks installation on a low memory box anaconda will
ask for permission to turn on swap. This makes no sense during
a (non-interactive) ks installation!

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-16 23:02:03 UTC
Will look into for the next release

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2001-11-17 09:15:41 UTC
I do consider this a bug! The purpose of a ks installation is that it is
fully automated and that the installer does NOT ASK QUESTIONS unless
absolutely necessary.If it asks questions it is useless for me! In this
particular case I wanted to install the box from at home and so I had to
drive to the office at sunday night in order to press the yes button.
I really do appreciate the ks feature a lot!!! Please fix. Thanks.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-17 18:46:16 UTC
It's fine line between enhancement and bug... I agree it should be fixed, but
fixing it is probably going to be too invasive for anything before the next release

Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2001-11-17 20:32:39 UTC
Sure, fixing it in the next release is ok. Just make sure it is not
forgotten (otherwise I will have to drive again when I upgrade the
box to 8.0;-)
