Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 927625
No mirrorlist available during kickstart installation
Last modified: 2013-07-05 13:47:26 EDT
Description of problem:
If I start kickstart installation, and do not specify url to the repository in kickstart, anaconda won't use mirrorlist. I'm sure this worked in F18, but now it only prints "Nothing selected". (see screenshot)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation with following kickstart file:
clearpart --all --initlabel
part / --fstype=ext4 --size=7000
Anaconda complains that no installation source is selected.
Anaconda should use closest mirror as it does during manual installation.

If that's how it worked in F18, then F18 was wrong. Kickstart installs should stop and prompt you for any information you did not provide. Since you didn't provide any installation method, we need to ask you for one. That's how all the other commands work.
Is there something in kickstart file to specify closest mirror? I don't see anything on anaconda/kickstart wiki.
