Re: RHEL 5/6/7 Kickstart Options



Hello Brandon,

You are actually doing it wrong. You should try the following way.

%packages
@group1
@group2 --nodefaults
@group3 --optional
package1
package2
-package3



The option --optional shall be used with the package group not with %packages section. The same is available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6[1] and 7[2] as well.

A link[3] from Fedora Documentation also explains about it.

Hello,

 

I’m working on Kickstart scripts targeted towards RHEL 5/6/7 and I would like to make them all as portable and reusable as possible. I understand some options and flags were added in newer releases of Anaconda but I cannot find documentation stating which options were added in which Anaconda version. A “works with RHEL {version}” would also help.

 

My current question is this, for package selection I would like to also install optional packages using the --optional parameter at  %packages --optional but for a RHEL6 installs Anaconda throws the error “no such option: --optional

 

Is the --optional parameter not available for RHEL6 installs?

# Package Selection  #

#Core Packages

%packages --optional

@core

@base

@Compatibility libraries

@Desktop

@Development tools

@General Purpose Desktop

@Server Platform Development

@X Window System

Thanks,

 

Brandon
