Re: How to record output from kickstart



Quoting Alex Tang <altitude proofpoint com>:


you can modify the post installation script to have:

%post

/usr/bin/chvt 3
(
# post installation scritpt
....
....
# end of postinstall
)

2>&1 | /usr/bin/tee /tmp/post_install.log

/usr/bin/chvt 1

This is diverting standard oituput and error 
also on /tmp/post_install.log in the kickstart client
