Re: How to restrict package installation to x86_64



Hello John,

I don't know if there's a way to globally restrict packages the way you're
looking for, but if it suits your purposes, you can write something like
this in the '%packages' section of your ks.cfg:

%packages
@ Admin
myfoopackage.x86_64
-myfoopackage.i386

The '-' prefix tells Kickstart not to install it.

hth,
Klaus
