Re: HTTP kickstart - using an includes/ directory

Hi-

I'm doing HTTP kickstart with CentOS44, and as I have done with NFS,
would like to %include a per-server hostname.inc packages file with
an %include statement in the kickstart file. Ideally, I'd like to
have an "/includes" subdirectory in the OS install tree, where HTTP
is also fetching my kickstart file from.

With NFS, a path like /mnt/source/includes/ could be used - so in
the NFS kickstart file:

%include /mnt/source/includes/hostname.inc

My installation url/ks file path is:
http://10.135.135.1/kickstart/CentOS44/os/x86_64/hostname.ks

This exists:
http://10.135.135.1/kickstart/CentOS44/os/x86_64/includes/hostname.inc

This:
%include includes/hostname.inc
doesn't work; anaconda doesn't find the path and aborts the install.

I've tried several different paths for the include statement, and
also changed the location of the include directory, to no avail,
even the full method:path doesn't work:

%include http://10.135.135.1/kickstart/CentOS44/os/x86_64/includes/hostname.inc

I've also not found any documented mention yet of how this works -
does anyone know what's going on here - am I stupidly missing
something simple?

Many thanks for any insight!
Harold

In %pre
cd /tmp
wget \ http://10.135.135.1/kickstart/CentOS44/os/x86_64/includes/hostname.inc

then
#include /tmp/hostname.inc

or generate the whole thing in cgi, and not bother with the include at all.
