kickstart "upgrade" should not prompt to "Customize" RPMS
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
We either need a way to turn that prompt off, or just dont
do it by default if it is a kickstart upgrade.
I need to completely automate the upgrading of a bunch of
machines (without telling people to select no to that
PS. Im using the updated boot images from 10/21/99
Try specifying the "text" option in the ks.cfg file, as that will
force the installer into TUI mode and you will not be prompted for
Individual Package Selection. In addition, the installs/upgrades
should run faster.

Ill try the text option when I get back to the office, but Im pretty
sure I already had it. Basically it already was a complete text based
upgrade, it was just that at the very end it asked if you wanted to
customize the list of upgraded rpms. That is the only message I wasnt
able to suppress.
Ill give you more information by wednesday.
Even if the "text" option is specified, the kickstart upgrade
still prompts for "customize packages". (with the old boot disks,
I wasn't able to use the new ones with ks=floppy: it just freezes).
Issue will be resolved in the next cut of the beta.
