FAQ
Hey,

I am trying to upgrade my kickstart usb key to 6.0 and I ran into a few issues.
I boot with:

? append initrd=initrd.img ks=hd:sdb2:/ks.cfg repo=hd:sdb2:/centos
and in the ks.cfg I have:

? harddrive --partition=sdb2 --dir=/centos

and on sdb2 I have:

? sdb2:/centos/CentOS-6.0-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso
? sdb2:/centos/CentOS-6.0-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
It fails from the beginning unless I add /images inside /centos,
If I do:

? sdb2:/centos/CentOS-6.0-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso
? sdb2:/centos/CentOS-6.0-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
? sdb2:/centos/images/install.img it goes all the way until after the pre script and then complain that sdb2:/centos does not contain the installation images...

I suspect it does not give a damn about the two DVD isos and expect the unpacked content...
But with CentOS 5, it used to work fine with the CD isos...
Is it only CD isos allowed?

Or not even CDs?


Thx,
JD

    I suspect it does not give a damn about the two DVD isos and expect the unpacked
    content...
    I tried with the DVDs contents instead of the isos and it still fails with:
    "The installation source given by device ['sdb2'] could not be found
    But if I go in the console:
    ? $ mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt/isodir
    ? $ ls /mnt/isodir/centos
    ? Packages images repodata
    Everything needed seems to be accessible...
    I cannot find any specific message complaining about a missing/invalid directory in anaconda logs...
    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Thx,
    JD
