Error in kickstart docs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:24 EDT
I think that the docs for the "--append" option for the bootloader command is
missing a "=".
If you look in kickstart.py from anaconda:
(args, extra) = isys.getopt(args, '',
[ 'append=', 'location=', 'useLilo', 'lba32',
'password=', 'md5pass=', 'linear', 'nolinear',
It looks like the 'append' tag needs an "=". It's also not clear what the
proper syntax for the kernel parameters is supposed to be.
1) Do I need to put the parameters in quotation marks? Probably not, but it's
2) If there's more than one, do they need to be comma separated? Or does each
additional parameter need another "append" tag like:
bootloader --append=nodma --append=noapic
We need more information. Note: I'm not sure what the correct answer is here.
Maybe check with katzj.
I was told that you can use the = or not. I'll test it and let you know.
katzj said the syntax is:
--append="foo bar baz"
I added an explanation of how to specify multiple parameters and an example.
It will appear in the next version.
