How to skip update disk prompt
Last modified: 2011-04-20 10:20:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to do a text mode ks install of F15 Alpha TC1 and I get a prompt for update disk source. For unattended installs we can't have any prompts. Is a new ks option needed? If so, a release note will be warranted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Please attach your kickstart file and /tmp/anaconda.log. Thanks.

Hm, those weren't as enlightening as I'd hoped. Do you remember the exact message of the dialog you're hitting?
Title: Update Disk Source
You have multiple devices which could serve as sources for an update disk. Which would you like to use?
Okay, I think I see what's going on now. Thanks.
Proposing as a blocker, as this makes automated installs no longer automated. This should hit just about everyone doing a kickstart install.
I don't think we have criteria would be impacted by fully automated installs. We'll need to work on that. In the meantime, this would *definitely* qualify as a nice to have for the Alpha in my opinion.
we are working on criteria for kickstart installs, remember, jlaska. i think the email ball is in your court atm =)

I haven't settled on anything concrete from our private discussion on this, but it's still in my inbox awaiting inspiration.
Can reproduce with Alpha RC2 - please reconsider this bug as a blocker for beta, even if there's no criteria for this case yet. Required interactions in non-interactive installations are a really bad thing.
It's already been committed to the f15-branch for beta, hence the Fixed In Version: starts with a "15" instead of a "16".
