I need to make a custom ks.cfg DVD for my centOS 5 install. I figured I would download the 5.4.iso. My question is will packages from previous version of centOS 5.0-5-3 work with my 5.4 centOS image?

Server :: Custom CentOS 5 Install With Ks.cfg File And CentOS All In One

Jan 14, 2010

What i want to be able to do is create a custom kickstart for my centOS 5 server. I want to create a bootable cd that I can pop in my server and basically walk away for 45 minutes and I come back and its fully installed. All the directions I have read so far tell me that I have to create a seperate ks.cfg and then I need my original centos cd to get it booted. Then the cd will ask for where the ks.cfg file is and I have to type the location. I just want to pop the CD in and type in linux_clean or something and have it perform a custom install based on the information and specification in my ks.cfg. How can I go about doing this?

Debian :: Make A Custom Install Disk?

Sep 20, 2010

for a project I am working on, I need the same install configuration on every machine, and I'd like to have all the packages I need on one disc, with none of the ones I don't. I also need to use a non-standard file systems(jffs2,nilfs) as the hardware end of my project works on flash memory, and would like these two FSs to replace the typical magnetic disk based choices.

CentOS 5 Server :: Building Custom Kernel 2.16.19-128.1.10?

May 27, 2009

I have builded my kernel through wiki manual, BUT, the kernel-headers rpm-package has not been builded. Now i have only two packages: kernel and kernel-devel. Is that ok? (i think, that it is not ok, because when i build the same version of kernel on x86_64 platform, after rpmbuild command i have kernel, kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages) My CentOS version is 5.2; platform i686; kernel, kernel-headers, kernel-devel packages 2.6.18-92.el5.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Any Rpms From Custom Appliance Build

Jun 15, 2011

We have an appliance with image being installed from CD/DVD installation
This appliance image is based on CentOS 4.7 kernel/installer/etc. Everything works fine, we ship this product for about 2 years. Recently I had to move it (port everything) to CentOS 5.5 Everything went fine and it works fine except one minor thing )) We can't install it from CD/DVD image yet. Actually it start fine, finds kickstart file, creates partitions correctly, copies install image to harddrive, but fails the next step when it tries to install RPM's

The message we get:

Quote:
the file termcap-5.5-1.20060701.1.noarch.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require re-installation"

Fedora Installation :: Erratic Install Results W/initrd - Custom Spins With Custom Drivers - Modules?

Dec 28, 2009

Just spent three whole days barking up the wrong tree, solving Fedora 11 and Fedora 12 boot failures because the correct hypothesis was illogical: installation did not update/modify the initrd.

The first couple of times I installed Fedora 11 on the HighPoint Technologies RocketRaid 2640x4, the installation inserted my "custom" driver module (rr26xx) into the initrd, permanently, so that the system booted off the controller card for which the custom driver was inserted. (I yelled about this success in this thread: [url]

My most recent installs of BOTH F11 and F12 on the RocketRaid failed to properly set up the boot. It turns out that the "rr2640" module I "slipstreamed" into the installation process was *NOT* permanently added to the initrd by anaconda. (F12 gave me "no root device found boot has failed, sleeping forever", on boot; F11 hung also, without such error, I presume, during the init script execution). Because of limited resources and time, I only know for sure the module was missing from the F11 initrd, and am ASSUMING the same was the case with F12.

The only difference between the successful installs and the ones with failed boot is that the successful installs were made on a single-drive (JBOD) mode on the controller; whereas, the failed ones were placed on RAID 5. But, AFAIK, the created logical device for the card is "/dev/sda", in both cases, and the kernel can not distinguish between the two cases (or can it?). Thus, the inconsistency cost me a lot of time, and is still inexplicable to me.

Question: What is the best way to deal with custom drivers, today? There are custom spins, and many tools, like isomaster. Stupid question: Is there a way to modify the initrd inside an installer ISO -- be it for CD/DVD/USBboot drive -- beefing the init RAM disk with whatever modules you'd like, for the boot process (using, say, isomaster)?

And what makes anaconda understand that a module must be added to the initrd ? How can one force anaconda to do so?

How does moving to dracut as the initrd tool affect any/all of the above?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Installing CentOS 5.3 Using Custom ISO And Drive Disk?

Nov 10, 2009

I am having new hardware and IDE driver for that hardware as drive disk image (it8213_centos53.img). CentOS 5.3 installation is working fine with drive disk image at USB and CentOS 5.3 at DVD. Our application uses CentOS 5.3 and we build a custom kick-start ISO for installations. Using that ISO client is going to install on all hardware boxes.

Note while installing :
a) No network connection is avalible.
b) No USB isavalible.
c) No floppy is avalible.
d) Only single CD-ROM is avalible.

So, is it possible to build single custom kick-start CentOS 5.3 ISO which contains dirve disk image and entire installation will be done using that image. If so please let me know the steps to build it.

General :: Make Custom 'locale' Files?

Jul 9, 2011

Under Debian "Expert Installation" once I have chosen installation/system language and location, I get an informative notice, that:

Code:
There is no locale defined for the combination of language and country you have selected.

..and I need to choose one locale available for the selected language. As I understand, locale is just a set of environmental variables used by applications and printed out with locale command?

In addition, is it possible to generate own locale files after the installation, which will match my needs?

Software :: How Hard Would It Be To Make Custom Distro?

Feb 20, 2011

I would like to take say, CentOS5, customize it to my needs, then make an installer ISO for it.Basically I'd like it to be a next next next install, and it has everything already in it like sshfs, basic config files, and other custom stuff preconfigured. I tend to do all these things manually every time I install, and I'd like to just automate it all, and also not have to depend on an internet connection each time. How would How would I go about doing that? I don't want to just take a disk image, since then I'm restricted to that platform. I still want it to be a true installer.
