Hi everyone,
I ve just subscribed to the list. I have little experience in doing
kickstart files and I have a problem to solve.
I need to install a blabla.tar.gz by the kickstart file. Anyone could
help me???
How do I move the tar.gz file to the system so then in the %post
section (I supouse) do:
tar -xvzf blabla.tar.gz
make install
Thank you very much!!!

Three mechanisms:

1.  Create a real RPM out of the tarball, so it's under RPM management

Do yourself a favour, and use this method.  If this is something you're going to want to install on more than one server, make an RPM out of it.  It's really not hard, and you'll save yourself so many headaches in the long run.

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs?
It's no comparison:  http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
