Default kickstart bug ?

I tried today a kickstart install, using the ks.cfg
file generated by system-config-kickstart.
I put it on a NFS server, and added:
ks=nfs:server:/ks.cfg
to the install boot options

The install starts, but at the partition step, I get:
no root defined

According the syslog, the file is found on the server,
but I have the following messages:

Failed to parse langsupport options
Failed to parse timezone options
Failed to parse rootpw options
Failed to parse user options
Failed to parse bootloader options
Failed to parse clearpart options
Failed to parse partition options
Failed to parse partition options
Failed to parse partition options
Failed to parse auth options
Failed to parse network options
Failed to parse firewall options
Unrecognized kickstart command firstboot

before doing a bug report, I would like to know wether
somebody else used kickstart for Intrepid install,
and what was the result.

Hi Pierre,

have you check your Anaconda-File with ksvalidator to make sure that no syntax errors are in the file?

For example:

- ksvalidator /root/ks.cfg

If there is no output produced by the command, the kickstart file has successfully validated. This means the syntax of the file is correct.

best regards

Hi gregor,
the output is: ksvalidator: not found !!
I did'nt find it either with synaptic. What package does it belong to?
google told me to look at pykickstart, but synaptic didn't find this package.

Anyway, this program would be useful if I had modified the generated file, but
this is not the case.
So, there is obviously a bug either in system-config-kickstart or in the installer.
I would bet for the second one, as the generated file is almost
identical to the ks.cfg I used for Redhat install for many years.

I then repeat my question: has anybody installed Intrepid with kickstart?

best regards,

Hi Pierre,

yeah i used Kickstart only for some RedHat installation for few months ago without any problems. I found now an information, that the tool ksvalidator is "only" in RedHat5, pity! Nice tool.

http://maimon-it.blogspot.com/2007/08/ksvalidator-validate-kickstart-file.html

Maybe somebody know identic tools like ksvalidator, otherwise i dont really know where is the failure.

best regards
