RE: Can't get files to %include

Hi John,

Adrian is correct in saying that you need to specify anything in the pre section, because it's then that anything can be set.

If you put something into /tmp in the pre section, then before the pre section ends, copy it to /mnt/sysimage/tmp and then once in the post section, it will be in /tmp and available for you use.
Basically, /tmp from the pre section is no longer available in the post section (but it is available in a post section if you specify --nochroot).
What was in /mnt/sysimage/tmp is now in /tmp in the post section

Hi, Adrian.  I'm not sure what you mean by "it's too late"... it's an
include.  I can't include something in %pre that must be done in %post

And that doesn't explain why %include
/mnt/source/isolinux/setup-questions works, but copying setup-questions
to /tmp/ and then %include /tmp/setup-questions does not, even though
/tmp/setup-questions exists, is readable, and contains the exact same
code that works just fine when included from the DVD.

I have several kickstarts, and chunks of code that are common to all of
them.  I want to have those common chunks in one place, so when I need
to make a change, I make it in one place and the change will
automatically be seen by all kickstarts.  Just in case there's a
question of terminology here.
