Is there a way to dynamically pick packages to install from Kickstart?



Hi folks.

I'm working on a project that will use anaconda to install a customized distro on multiple hardware platforms.  Everything seems to work well, but i'd like to do one more thing (don't we all?)

I've edited the comps.xml file so that it has four "groups":
  • core
  • base
  • platformX
  • platformY
It has two categories in the "grouphierarchy" section:
  • catX
    • groups: core, base, platformX
  • catY
    • groups: core, base, platformY
I have a "%pre" script that can figure out some hardware stuffs and figure out if i'm on platformX or platformY.  I'd like to be able to specify that catX or catY be installed (without asking the user) depending on waht the "%pre" script returns or does.

Is this possible?

Thanks.
