Re: using ks only for package selection



Thanks for Forrest Taylor for quickly responding that this method works fine WITHOUT the "interactive" keyword.

I think I will not even begin to try to figure this one out, but surely this is a bug?

Thanks for the quick responses.

I would like to use kickstart only to select the same packages on all machines. (partitions, networking, etc may be different between them). This is to do a 7.3 install on an existing 7.2 system (usually reformat / and /boot, keep existing /home)

I tried this by taking an anaconda-ks.cfg and paring it down, but it
didn't work.  I cut it down to just: ----------
# Kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.

interactive
%packages
<package list deleted to save space>

%post
-----------
and it still didn't work.  It failed after mouse selection with the
message: "Could not allocate requested partitions
Parition failed: Could not allocate partition as primary partition
Press OK to reboot"

No where in any of the ks.cfg files I used was there any information
about requested partitions.  I expected to be prompted for that.  As the
machines aren't all partitioned the same way, I would like to be prompted
for that. I am glad it failed to repartition the drive, since that isn't
what I wanted it to do.

The same installation went fine without using kickstart, but I would like
to make the next 5 machines the same.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Bruce
