RE: Including nonstandard RPMs in the KS install



You do 'not' need to modify comps.xml as
of redhat-9 if you add the package to
the %packages section in ks.cfg

You 'do' need to run genhdlist --withnumbers
though to rebuild the hdlist files.

My custom distribution fits on one cd, so
I have not had to run splitdistro or rebuild
the installer or any of that fun.

I just drop the file into RedHat/RPMS, run
genhdlist --withnumbers, and run makeiso.

Adding RPMs to the %packages section won't work unless you modify
comps.xml and rebuild hdlist and hdlist2.  To do this, follow the
instructions here[1].

A quicker and easier way is to simply install the RPMs in the %post
section.  You'll have to mount the CDROM first which is described
here[2].
