Description Vimal Kumar 2012-07-18 06:08:09 EDT
Description of problem:

* Is installing a RHS2.0 node over the network via kickstart supported or atleast considered a proper method of installation ?

* This is because there is no label named 'linux' defined in 'isolinux/isolinux.cfg' in a RHS2.0 ISO. 

* The isloinux.cfg configuration is as following :

default install
prompt 1
timeout 30
display boot.msg
F1 boot.msg

label install
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img ks=file:/ks.cfg quiet

label rescue
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img rescue

label local
  localboot 1

label memtest86
  kernel memtest
  append -

I dont see our documentation talking anything about kickstarting with an RHS2.0 ISO.

So a user who tries to do a kickstart (assuming it will work as a normal RHEL ISO) will normally use something like 'linux ks=<URL>/ks.cfg' to try out a kickstart installation which will ofcourse error out with the message "Could not find kernel image: linux'.

Was the isolinux.cfg edited to omit out the 'linux' label on purpose ? Or am I overlooking something ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* RHS2.0

How reproducible:

* Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Boot the machine with an RHS2.0 ISO to do a normal or network install.
2. Enter 'linux <further arguments>'
3. The installer will error out with the message "Could not find kernel image: linux'.

Actual results:

* The installer errors out with the message :

"Could not find kernel image: linux'.

Expected results:

* The installer should continue with the install taking 'linux' as a proper argument.

Verified on RHS-2.1-20130806.n.2-RHS-x86_64-DVD.iso, isolinux.cfg now has:

label linux
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img ks=file:/ks.cfg quiet asknetwork
