Re: Issue in ks.cfg (anaconda-13.21.56-1.el6)

*Description of problem:*

We use RHEL 6 (snapshot 7) for unattended OS deployment. In the ks.cfg, we
python in %pre section to find hard disk. The python module "kudzu" is not
in RHEL6, which we where using for all our unattended deployments. Also we
doGetBiosDisk function from isys module to find the bios boot disk. This
function also seems deprecated. Please suggest the alternate for kudzu
and doGetBiosDisk.

*Code Snippet:*

%pre --interpreter=/usr/bin/python
import kudzu,string,sys

*Version-Release number:
*RedHat EL 6 (snapshot 7)

Any help is highly appreciated.

kudzu is no longer available in RHEL.  BIOS disk numbers are found via the edd
kernel module using the data in /sys/firmware/edd

See the /usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devicelibs/edd.py file for how we match the
EDD data to devices in anaconda.
