I am fairly sure that it does, though today I've tested ~20 different
combination of builds and things, so there's a small chance I got it
wrong.

cheers,

I know it wasn't doing this before, and I'm not sure it's supposed to
now. I've not seen any changes related to kickstart loading other then
for the kickstart located on an NFS share... but then again I may have
subconsciously ignored the commit.


I'll try and figure out how it's supposed to work and how it actually works.

When I crafted the patch I was reading the Anaconda/Kickstart
wikipage, specifically the
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart#Creating_a_Kickstart_Boot_CD-ROM
section. Re-reading it now, I notice that you have to complement that
with http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart#Boot_CD-ROM -

Hmmm. Unless a `git grep ks.cfg` of anaconda turns up a smoking gun,
the patch I posted may be a misfire :-/

cheers,
