lang option of kickstart not parsed
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:39 EST
I have the following start to my kickstart file:
network --bootproto dhcp
nfs --server spacebird.uskonet.com --dir /systems/redhat/6.1/i386
When I boot, the nfs server is mounted, and then I get asked to choose my
language, which should be obtained from the kickstart file.
I have tried:
'lang en' as well as 'lang en_US'
I have also tried moving the lang specifier to after the network lines, to
My guess is that you are having problems before you even get to the language
screen. If you flip over to VC2 when the lang config screen comes up, you will
probably find a message telling you that no method was found for kickstart.
This means that the system did not even attempt to load your ks.cfg file.
Where are you retrieving the ks.cfg file from?
This means you aren't having your kickstart file detected properly. Look at
VC3 to figure out why not.
i have a similar problem.
it IS a bug. kickstart is seriously broken, and it shouldn't be that hard
my problem is that it works fine if i specify the network --static blah blah
blah for one particular IP, but if i use a different IP, it breaks, and asks for
my language, what type of install (NFS), and a coupple other questions..
THEN, it does the kickstart, and is hunky dory.
