Fedora Installation :: 13 Kickstart Install From HDD ISO?

Jun 1, 2010

I have not used Fedora in a long while (since version 5 I think).I am moving back to it for my new home server but there is something that is driving me completely crazy. Can you no longer do HDD installs from a ISO?I whipped out my old kickstart files and worked off of them and all seams to be OK but every time it says it is unable to find the install source.Here are the first two lines of my KS file:

harddrive --partition=sdb1 --dir=/linux_install/fedora/iso

CentOS 5 :: Yum Still Running During Kickstart Post Installation Script

Sep 13, 2011

I put a script into the post installation of kickstart and the log showed that the yum that is started in the script had to wait for yum to finish. I understand I can (and will) put this package in the packages section, but isn't it bad that yum is still finishing up when the post installation is initialized? Has anyone else noticed this?

Fedora Installation :: 15 Post Install Boot - Computer Hangs Before Grub Loads

Jun 5, 2011

I performed a clean install of Fedora 15 from DVD and it goes fine until the end when the install program says to reboot the computer. Once I do that, the computer hangs before Grub loads, i.e. just after all of the BIOS messages, so there isn't any error message to indicate what is wrong. I had no issues with Fedora 14.

Fedora Installation :: Get F14 Updates As Part Of A Kickstart Installation

Apr 5, 2011

I'd like to write a kickstart file that installs available Fedora 14 updates as part of the installation process, much as if I was doing a standard Fedora 14 installation and had enabled the 'updates' repo.

So my question is, is there an easy way to do this? I don't want to have to go down the route of downloading all updated packages and maintaining my own update repo (or indeed, creating a repo with the dependencies listed above).

Fedora X86/64bit :: What Would Be Potential Problems During The Installation And/or Post Installation

Dec 28, 2010

I'm using couple of Intel Core i7 based workstations. Here is one such example:Processor: Core i7-870 (Lynfield) Motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD6RAM: Corsair DDR3-1600 - 8GB (4 sticks). Graphics: Sapphire Toxic ATI 5850 - 2GB - DDR5Am always used to 32-bit Linux installation. Now I would like to go with the FC14 64-bit on this workstation. My question is:a) How different would be a FC 64-bit compared to 32-bit (8GB RAM issues I faced in Windows 7 32-bit)b) What would be potential problems during the installation and/or post installation. I get these questions in my mind because of Motherboard and Graphics card support and also thinking about applications (issues) on FC14.

Software :: RedHat Kickstart Post Fglrx Rpm Install Not Working

Feb 23, 2010

As the title says, I'm building a kickstart for a RedHat installation.I'm trying to incorporate the firegl driver rpm installation and its halfway working, not completly. What I've tried so far is to place the rpm in the --nochroot and in the normal chroot enviornment and neither one works. In the --nochroot, install it with rpm --root /mnt/sysimage/ and in the normal post i just do an rpm -ivh. In either case the fglrx folder is built within /lib/modules, however everything thats supposed to be installed never makes it to the newly installed root. I'm thinking that its actually getting installed to the installation / as opposed to the new /.

Fedora Installation :: F14 Installation Hung On "running Post-installation Scripts" For 90 Minutes

Jun 22, 2011

I'm trying to perform an install of F14 (fresh install over F13), and it has been showing "running post-installation scripts" for 1 1/2 hours now. I am wondering if this is unusual and what the implications might be of power-cycling and rebooting. I'd note this is a fairly fast machine with 2 quad-core Xeons (I forget their model number).

Red Hat / Fedora :: Complete Automated Installation Using Kickstart

Jan 25, 2010

I want to install Red hat based custom OS in a complete automated mode.I ll have my kick start file inside the CD rom and when I boot with that ISO or CD.The OS should start installing by taking parameters from the kick start file without having to specify the path of the kick start file inside the CD.like "linux ks=<path>".Is it possible to achieve this by writing any script or something so that when the CD boots the kick start path is passed automatically to the anaconda installer.

Fedora Installation :: Kickstart DVD Always Requires Internet Access

Sep 7, 2009

I'm trying to set a kickstart DVD for automatically installing Fedora 10 without touching the existing data partitions on our systems. I've got a kickstart file that works great from a kickstart server however I'm having issues with creating an unattended kickstart DVD. I've attached a copy of the kickstart file from the DVD. For some reason even though all the packages we are installing are on the DVD, anaconda always attempts to connected to the internet to get repository information after completing the partitioning. I have changed the install type to 'cdrom' before anyone asks! I have removed my %pre and %post sections as these just copy in some config files and do not touch anything other than local paths.

Fedora Installation :: Generate A Kickstart File From An Existing Setup ?

Jan 4, 2009

I have recently been given the task of setting up some thirty odd netbooks with F10 and i was wondering if there is a way to generate a kickstart file from the first netbook (my one lol ) that i have setup to our needs so as to use it to create the same install on the rest of the netbooks. i had thought that i could use the anaconda-ks.cfg file in root's home dir but it is not at all representative of the custom package list i chose during the install.

Fedora Installation :: F11 - Kickstart Setup For Mirrored Volume Group

Oct 22, 2009

Fedora 11. I am trying to setup kickstart so it lays out a mirrored volume group. I have 2 disks sda and sdb. I want a primary partition on each disk 200mb in size for /boot. This is to be mirrored onto raid device md0 (raid 1). The rest of each disk is to be setup partition which grows to use the remaining space, and is also mirrored (raid 1) md1. Onto md1, I want an LVM volume group called rootvg, and logical volumes set up on there for /, /home, /usr, /tmp etc. I can lay this out manually, and it works fine. However, the code below, which is slightly amended from a previous anaconda-ks.cfg file doesn't work.

clearpart --linux --drives=sda,sdb --initlabel
part raid.11 --asprimary --size=200 --ondisk=sda
part raid.12 --grow --size=1 --ondisk=sda
part raid.21 --asprimary --size=200 --ondisk=sdb
part raid.22 --grow --size=1 --ondisk=sdb
raid /boot --fstype=ext3 --level=RAID1 --device=md0 raid.11 raid.21
raid pv.1 --level=1 --device=md1 raid.12 raid.22

volgroup rootvg --pesize=32768 pv.1
logvol / --fstype=ext4 --name=rootlv01 --vgname=rootvg --size=512
logvol /home --fstype=ext4 --name=rootlv02 --vgname=rootvg --size=256
logvol /tmp --fstype=ext4 --name=rootlv03 --vgname=rootvg --size=128
logvol /usr --fstype=ext4 --name=rootlv04 --vgname=rootvg --size=3072
logvol /var --fstype=ext4 --name=rootlv05 --vgname=rootvg --size=1024

Fedora Installation :: User Created W/Kickstart Password Is Wrong

Aug 13, 2010

I have a kickstart script that attempts to create user "joeblow" with an encrypted password. The user is created okay, but the password does not seem to "take". After installation is complete, and the system is rebooted, this is the relevant portion of /etc/passwd:


This is the relevant portion of /etc/shadow:


Where there are two exclamation points, I would expect the encrypted password (as is the case for the root user, which is also created in the kickstart file).

The relevant line in my kickstart file looks like this:


That password string, which is 34 characters, is the word "password", encrypted with this command:


Also in my kickstart file is this line:


After the install is complete, I reboot and attempt to log in as "joeblow", but no dice. If I log in as root, and manually put the above encrypted password into /etc/shadow for jowblow, I can then log in as joeblow.

Ubuntu Installation :: E: Lib32nss-mdns: Subprocess Installed Post-installation Script Returned Error Exit Status 2

E: wine1.2: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

I went into Synaptics Package Manager and told it to uninstall WINE in case that was what was causing the problems. It sort of half-uninstalled-it then gave me that exact same error message.I have two threads currently open on the forums - adjusting laptop brightness and flashing BIOS - and both problems hit a brick wall because of this same error message.
