Re: PATCH: Partition auto-detection and HD exploded tree installation



All,

Following up on my previous email, I have implemented a patch that
auto-detects the source and kickstart devices. The file can be downloaded
from
http://www.abodiosoftware.com/patches/anaconda-11.2.0.19_abodio_autodetect.p
atch and is for Anaconda Version #11.2.0.19. Please consider this patch for
inclusion in the anaconda sources. 

As a reminder, this patch allows the kickstart and method options to be
specified at the command line as follows (note the empty partition section
between the two colons):

	ks=hd::/path/to/ks.cfg, and
	method=hd::/path/to/install/files

And, within the kickstart file, a hard drive install can be specified as
follows (note the lack of a --partition directive):

	harddrive --dir=/path/to/install/files

This patch is modified slightly from the one I had initially provided.  The
original patch selected the first partition encountered with the
kickstart/install files on it. This (new) patch gives the user more control
and:

  * if the number of partitions with the file/directory is 0, do nothing, or
  * if the number of partitions with the file/directory is 1, use that one,
or
  * else pop up the dialog box and ask the user which partition to use.

Thanks much,
Uday.
