Description Daniel Mach 2012-11-05 12:31:57 UTC
Reproducer:
#!/usr/bin/python

from pykickstart.parser import *
from pykickstart.handlers.f18 import *

ks = KickstartParser(F18Handler())
ks.readKickstartFromString("""
%packages
foo
%end
""")

print(str(ks.handler))


Output:
#version=DEVEL
# System timezone
timezone 
# Installation logging level
logging --level=info

%packages
foo

%end


Please note that extra data was added to the kickstart.
If I want to use pykickstart to modify only %packages section while keeping the rest of the file exactly the same, there's no way how to do it.

Could you fix pykickstart to work only as a kickstart parser/writer without doing any product specific magic?

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2012-11-12 16:32:34 UTC
Okay, I've taken care of timezone (which was a straight-up bug) and logging.  The extra blank lines in there I'm not really concerned with, and the version comment is useful to system-config-kickstart so it needs to stay.
